Incidence plates and pins fitted (sharp intake of breath from the rubber band boys!).

Time for sheeting.

Sheeting started - 0.4mm ply ironed on - butt jointed over 20mm wide 0.4mm ply back straps.

The rib that each strap is glued to is reduced in depth by the thickness of the ply, top and bottom. Easily done with a piece of sandpaper glued to the face of a strip of 12 x 12mm pine long enough to bridge the two adjacent ribs.

Nice Robbie! Just a thought based on experience - would it be worth while to double up on the LE ply thickness over the two or three ribs next to the fuselage? That's the place that the wing gets the most handling and .4 ply is quite thin.
