Some more activities on the wing. I have sanded the support blocks in the nose section. That went rather easy as I used soft balsa. Just sand until the black has disappeared from the the ribs.

Then the sheeting of the nose section. I bought a rather hard quality 2mm balsa so the bending will take quite some force. Too overcome that problem I wetted the top surface a bit. The sheet will start to curve by itself and can be glued with almost no force applied.

For your information, I have put the Meteor build into a temporary slow down. Summer is coming so time to go out flying! And in addition a small intermediate project... :D
