Moving on to the wings

Made the decision to move onto the wings. There's still sections 11 (servo) and section 12 (the fairing) to complete but I didn't want to go through the trouble of assembling the rudder and stabalator and then taking it all apart again for storage. I'm pretty sure you would still take it all apart for attachment to the fuselage in any case (I believe I read that). In any case I pulled the wing kit down and put the empanage up in it's place - see ya next year mr. fuse.

I've been eyeing the wing ribs and all that deburring but once I pulled them down and started examining them they should be pretty quick on the scotch bright wheel. They only have a shallow scallop to them and I can generally just run them down the edge of the wheel then catch the burr. They are pretty rough so it will take some time. Those parts are a couple sections away. First thing is to get the spars down from the rafters. That was a pretty big job getting them up there by myself and I'll find some help to get them down.
