    I have been studying the wing build Len... There are shorter joiners and longer joiners...I have laminate the shorter ones which I think go towards the LE and the longer ones go towards the TE ??? hard to tell from the plans......I get the first part of the wing build shown in the lower pictures but not what joiner goes where for sure......they are each 1/8" so three of them laminated is 3/8" which is the spar must become part of the spar but the transition is not clear to me.
    sorry for the Newbie questions but hate to keep making mistakes..
    Will await feed back before proceeding beyond the inner section build...

    Hi Kevin,
    Yes the longer one goes to the TE.

    Here are some photos that may help,

      as you can see in my tiny photo...still can't figure out how to do this right...slow setting aliphatic glue requires lots of weights and clamps and even more patience...
      Wing is scary as it is unlike anything I have ever built....Len has graciously sent me lots of pictures of how to do it correctly so with a big Breathe I started this last rib at a time
      as I have a slight warp in the spar...need to keep everything straight so no use rushing things...

          this stuff is amazing, just got it from Horizon Hobbies today. It is as thick as Tite Bond, but kicks in about 5 minutes which is helpful for things that don't want to stay put. It is not nearly as thin as Super Aliphatic and in fact doesn't like to dilute with water like Tite bond....good to have all three glues actually...
          got a good start on the wing panel today...thanks Len for photos...finally makes sense...

            +1 on the Speed Bond, have really enjoyed working with it on the Swallow build.
