Outer Wing Fabrication

Taking the formed ribs and built up spars, and combining them and fabbing the skins was the most satisfying part of the build so far, forming the providers of flight has a certain something about it that makes you feel so good! Finishing off all the fiddly bits like flap and aileron hinge mountings, less so. They are a bit crude and will be refined on the MK2.



Simon Knight nicely came round Wednesday evening and we riveted up the top wing skins along the spars and ribs I couldn't reach alone, I've never done any two man riveting but we got on well and only had about 3 rivets which needed any reworking. Two cups of tea and a late evening followed by a haggis dinner at home.
