Left wing inboard bottom skin
Straight from the right wing I am now working on the left wing inboard bottom skin. You definitely learn a lot about building airplanes from every step, this wing is 90% easier than the right. I can only imagine how good you get after building 2 or 3 planes. ;-) Now I know what they mean when they say you learn as you go, and it gets much easier. Anyway, this wing is looking good, about 1/2 way done with the inboard skin at this point. Bekah has helped me about 15 minutes so far and will need one more 15-20 minute session before I can finish. Basically she is helping with the rear spar riveting between the access panels. Most everything else I can now get myself on this wing. Getting a good plan together for the bottom outboard skin as I go.
