Thank you, Alexis, Kent, and Rick.  The devil is in the details, as they say.

You will be again the winner of the Group build with this bird!

Oh, no Group Build running? ??? You are the winner anyway.
It's sheer lunacy!

Cheers,
Frank

I see it with a crying and a laughing eye! Very nice to see this bird in a finished state, but on the other hand really pity, that the build report is finished. But I hope we will see another one from your bench!

Cheers,
Frank

The sheeting for the wings are 0.020".  The spars are 3/8" X 3/16".  The wings also have an embossed 0.010" sheet glued on the top surface for the rib detail.
