I was going to just add a new picture to my previous post on the right wing but the new vBulletin software won't allow more than five images per post. and that includes these yellow faces too......
The right wing is going well with center ribs, strut attach fittings, compression members, drag wires and tank straps in place now. I hope to start covering in January. There won't be any ski flying this winter but hopefully next winter.

Not too much new to report. We moved the assembled wing to the rotating fixture last night and opened up the saw horses for laying out the right wing spars.
