Steady progress Peter, there looks to be a lot of work in those wing ribs :o

I let the laser cutter take the strain (courtesy of Cliff Evans - Laser Cut Sailplanes) as all of my built-up wing designs are produced in CAD, so I have cutting files available ;)

Dummy LE & hinge spar planed/sanded flush with the ribs and the top skin applied.
Starting to look a bit more like a wing now.

Now the brake can be fitted from the top and servo hatch/cables fitted prior to adding the bottom skin.
