Tip o’ the wing to ye

Hours: 2.2 | Posted in Endgame, Wingtips

Let the wingtip fitting begin.  Sanded down the inside edge of the right tip, along with the foam rib to make it fit.  Once the tip fit properly into the wing, I drilled it to the wing using the prepunched holes in the skin.  I’ll drill more holes between those to secure the hinge eventually.

I have, as seems typical, a mismatch between the trailing edge of the tip and the aileron.  This will be fixed by splitting the TE and reglassing it at the proper angle before locking in place with the inner metal rib that is placed at the aft end of the tip.

Also installed the stick boots and labelled the data mark switch installed yesterday.
