Category: 3: Wings (Total 309h) — Steffen @ 21:44 — Hours: 2.5

I am finally done deburring the wing main ribs!! I even managed to straighten and flute the ribs for the right wing too..

I used my homemade hand-seamer for straightening the rib flanges.

The ribs are not very straight from the factory, so the need to be adjusted with a special tool, called a fluting plier..

At last I clecoed all the ribs to the forward and aft spar. Starting to look a bit like a wing already!

Every other builder takes this shot as well, so why not! Hehe..
