now about rejoining the wings. would you suggest i cut the center wing ribs and two nearest most all teh way through or partially - partially perhaps to keep some rib strength? i usually do partial then run half spars from both sides into the other wing half which i glue and wrap well in thread the two to form a solid joint there by foregoing the diehedral brace. which i cant do if i glue it all up and cut down the middle. hmm maybe i can.
What are you going to use for sheeting the wing or are you putting covering right over the framing ?
