 "Cloudster" Construction Project Session #32

Speed 400 Cloudster Project
The Cloudster plans call for pre-gluing the wing tip pieces together into a unit so that the tip of the unit can be blocked up 1/4" [scaled to (.231")] before gluing it to the leading and trailing edge. In the picture below, the three wing tip pieces are pinned down and glued together on the left wing tip plan as shown below.  
The wing's leading edges, trailing edges, and all of the spars have selected. In addition, all of the wing pieces, except the three center section ribs, have been cut out. You can see in the picture below (1) the two 3/16" wing tip units, (2) eighteen of the 1/16" R1 ribs stacked together, and (3) two each of the 1/16" R4, R5, R6, and R7 tip ribs. The center section ribs will be cut out later after the complete right and left wing halves have been built. A review the method of wing attachment will be reviewed carefully before the center section of the wing is built......................Tandy
