Sailplane Construction Project Session #114
In the picture below, notice the little sub rib's
tails that extend aft of the first spar on top and bottom. While handling
the wing, I accidentally broke off a couple of these tails and came to the
realization that being unsupported they were too fragile survive.
Therefore, I went throughout the wing and glued
in a solid support between the top and bottom tails on each and every sub
rib as shown below.
Today I also finished up the right dihedral joint
including gussets and diagonals between the right inner panel and the center
section as shown below.
Here is good top view of the wing's completed
center section showing both dihedral joints.
I spent a large part of this afternoon
carving, shaping, and sanding the left half of the wing's tapering leading
edge as shown below. I still have the right leading edge to do and quite a
bit of work on the trailing edge, but the construction of the Sailplane's
wing is finally coming to a close. I hope to finish the wing either tomorrow
or Tuesday at the latest..........................Tandy
