Saturday consisted of powertools and football. As an added bonus the Cowboys snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.

We spent 4.5 hours fabricating the skin supports for the left wing, drilling the supports, mounts and tip ribs. Everything got deburred, protected and riveted. For both wings. It was a large amount of work for very little visual payoff.

The next mini-project is the rear wing channel. This will involve some templates and a simple jig.

Project Status:
Wings: 18.5h ( 1h, 1h, 0.5h, 2.5h, 4h, 1h, 1.5h, 1h, 1.5, 4.5 )
