Building the Wings

The wing kit arrived 1/30/98 after a fourteen (?!) week wait. I have broken the construction log into the following sections so you will not go to sleep waiting for the pages and photos to load.  Both wing panels will be constructed at the the same time so all mistakes can be duplicated. If you have questions or suggestions concerning this phase of the project, by all means, e-mail me! As usual, I am creating images with the great Kodak DC120 digital camera and tweaking the images in PhotoShop.
