So very sorry Ben. Was there a well articulated FB jab? Don't know quite how I missed it since articulation is not high on the list of so many posters to that genre, including myself.  Huh "Well articulated" should jump right off the screen!! Undecided
Usually you're going on and on about  "The Glorious Game" or "Delightful Game" or how Liverpool trounced Manchester, or else F1 is in play......my feeble mind tends to glaze over when those topics pop up so I would n't recognize any jab, articulated or not.....

Field sports aside, after dinking around with some indoor foam meat trays, I'm back at the wing.
(bout freakin' time the chorus mutters)
. What Was That
Cut out a buncha circles, the diameter of the socket tube. The dire consequences predicted by Mr. Hatchett happened not - neat circles. Also, I managed to avoid hitting myself with the bar of the cutter whilst it spun. To support both claims, I present a pic of the panel from which I cut the circles. Notice, no ripping around the holes, and no blood. The other side of the panel is classified and restricted! The panel will now be cut into the requesite 36 squares which can be customized according to what I need where I need them.
As a complete aside, this process created 36 Tuits of 1/8 lite ply, each with a small hole centered; diam about 1.025". Some I will keep for obvious reasons, but there are a few available to members. First come first serve - extremely valuable item for your shop! Beating A Dead Horse

The concave isn't deep enough, or sharp enough, but it's what we get! Lot's of blending and sanding, but a start, or re-start.... Angry
Once the bottom of the wing is sheeted I can finish wrapping the curve under the fuse...Plans show a LOT of body fill, which I think can be replaced with balsa block..

Now I have to start thinking (?) in 3D.  Help Me The outer rib gets jigged up 5" on the front spar, to account for the 6 1/5 deg dihedral. But the back of the end rib gets twisted up to give 2 deg washout.
So best to lay the spars and get the washout in, then block up the panel to get the inner rib leaned in to 6 1/2 deg..  Huh Sign And sometime  those ply dihedral braces will be cut away from the center (it's part of the one piece wing scenario).
The more I fiddle with those those thin ply pieces the more I'm sure they aren't right. The cuts in those braces tilt rib #6 the wrong way. Since they really only apply to the one l piece wing I might just take them out..
You can't relly see it, but the back spar has to be re-positioned and the ribs modified. Roy has the spar set to make the flaps 5 inches at the center section, should be 3 inches. So the spar has to be swept back to a uniform 3" from TE.

OK. Got thinking about using an aluminum blade spar in the wing, like they do in Europe, so Glen dug through his supply and found me 2 nice pieces which Mr. Cool then helped me shape to the requisite 14 1/4" long by 2 3/4 inches tapering to 2 1/4 inches by.....then my mind not only wandered, but disappeared totally for a while. Realized that the blade would stick out either side of the wing center section by 10" each side. Potential for disaster is yuge. So tubes again  Beating A Dead Horse  Also, finally gave up idea of making the break at the scale location. My chances of building something that would key around the landing gear plates is less than nil. So break moves out 1 rib to non scale location.  Sad SNAFU.
I have to have the outer wing panel flat on the board so I can work on the washout, plus I have to have it built kind of attached to the center section or I'll never get it aligned.
SO, I made a jig that jacks up one end of the center section 2 1/4". The other end of the center will  then become square to the table ( see right angle). The jig keeps everything level front to back (measured yea!!) The rear 1" tube will come over and through rib 6 and end at 7. The  front tube, through the hole just under the H/W spar, has to come just as far, but wing taper won't allow a 1" tube. I'll make another rib like the lonely one at the gear, that will be the end of the panel. 2 tubes running it, plus 2 anti rotation pins between these 2 ribs.  Huh Sign When right panel is done, disconnect from center, move the jig to other end of center and do again.
I have a piece of 1/2" CF tube, not sure that is adequate for the front. May need 3/4" tube if there's room - more measuring and frigging.... Embarrassed
