The steel and brass are products supplied by Aeronaut as I understand it... They must supply to the continent

. i’m working my way through the second wing of the 1/5 build. i have just noticed that there is balsa sheet spanning one rib each side of the gull break in this build. This does not appear on the 1/5 plan. Now thinking if i should sheet this area too as it probably stiffens the structure. Any recommendations?

My recommendation would be yes. As well as strengthening the structure, the covering will look neater too.

Hmmm, looks like an omission at the magazine end: my original drawing shows the gull section fully sheeted. Have I sent you the complete build pic sequence: it shows clearly enough on there?
