There is only the right wing plan in the kit, so I took mine to Officeworks and had them scan and flip the page with the wing on it.

Placed against the original, there is only a millimetre in it.

Some of the guys on RCSB are reporting plan sets with both wings drawn and the wings being 15 mm different lengths!

I couldn't be happier with the result. 8-)

That's coming along nicely Max. There is no need to forget your progress, just use your photos from this build thread.

The left wing is coming along.

The second one is easier - not so much thinking time involved.

Beware! The chances of going wrong are also much higher on the second one - for the same reason!

OK. I've assembled the second wing to the point where I can attach it to the bit of the fuselage that I have built up.

I figured that I should see if there are any issues which need my attention while I can still make adjustments.

It all fits pretty well, except for where the back of the right wing meets the fuselage rib. There is a bit of a gap, but I can glue on some more balsa and sand it back until it's fair. A simple job.

I went back and had a look at the photo shoot I did on the prototype and I must say - it all looks pretty good.

The sweep of the wings and the dihedral look very convincing - as do the cranks.

Now I can complete the covering, ailerons and spoilers and make the wing bags for protection. :?

Cheers
Max
