Wing Ribs 8 and 9

Finally got back to working on the wings after a 3-week hiatus.  I had a big project at work that just wrapped up, and then I spent last week at the EAA Oshkosh 2018 air show!  Needless to say, I came back from Airventure very excited to get back...

Ribs 5 and 6

Wing underway

Tonight I started construction of the wing, starting with rib 12. I guess that means there are at least 11 more like these on both sides! Not much to these parts, just some stiffener channels and an interesting bushing assembly for an aileron torque tube....
