Big white wing

Now onto the wings

because of the complex curves and the age of this kit this is a time consuming process, taking a couple of days, but condensed into this one post. First the centre section is glued in place.

Once this has set the rear of the wing only is glued in place.

again, once set the leading edge is secured.

final stage once the leading edge is secure, the wing root is joined, to start with the wing is pressed down  and the inner joint in the wheel well flooded with CA to get a fast fix of the wing to the fuselage.

Then with a fine brush liquid cement is run along the whole joint along the top surface. This hopefully will give strength to the joint. Once this is all done I can focus on the other wing in the same fashion.
