The same has the original taken from the root and a tip template taken from Brian sharps at the weekend. Brian sharps few fantastically over the weekend so can not see that it needs changing. The span has been lengthened to 5 m though. Roo ☺

Roo,
In that case, it is almost certainly a Ritz3 section as for the PT Vega.

Leading edge cut off and shear Web cut and will be glued in later today. When I cut the leading edge off one wing had a bad bow in the inside panel from the bow drag. So I cut a new panel and grafted it with the old outside panel. .so now all good.

I have got back to doing the asw 20 after taking a break from it because I wanted to get two other fuselages glassed before the cold weather is here. As they are too big to fit in my hot box. I have glassed the wing tubes in the wings and fuz. I have also made up the joiner out of 14 mm steel rod glued inside a 16mm carbon tube.
