"Dear Dave. I cut the formers off center and used your MagnaBoard to build the fuselage flat and straight. The magnets and board make a great wing jig to keep it straight and easy to add wing tip washout. I made the stabilizer into one piece for easier trimming later on. Compression vertical grain 1/32 was added to strengthen the spar at root, 1/16 struts towards outboard wing, and Xs to the ribs. I added inboard short spars to round rib to help covering. Hope all this helps the wing survive a bad landing. Landing gear will be 1/32 wire and magnets. Having fun building. Regards, Heikki"
