Great work Fred. Any reason why you are using white glue. Would CA not be strong enough on a model this size?

CA is brittle Alan, PVA or aliphatic glues are much more flexible and last longer. If you don't need the speed of CA I wouldn't use it.

My first choice is always aliphatic, sands better than PVA

Howdy,

I mainly used white glue because I'm not in a rush  :D
Never really cared about the glue I used, but just checked, this is Pattex Vinylic glue. Great one!
Grabs the wood in 5 minutes, and after roughly an hour, you can start to move pieces.
Also, white glue great fro "lengthy" projects, as by the time I finished the apply the last drop of glue in the spar, it took a good 5 minutes. Impossible to do properly with CA.

I also usually put white glue, and a few drops of CA to have the best of both worlds, but not this time.

Anyway, managed to do more work, and everything is on schedule  :D
Photos tomorrow

And a week later, here is a quick update  :oops:

The Aileron's LE are glued on the wings



Then, the N1 rib is set at the correct dihedral (2 degrees)



And finally, the wing LE is glued, followed by the "mid" ribs (?).



Of course, at this stage, the wing joiner and incidence tubes are glued in place. Left to do now, are the airbrakes and sheeting  :D

And finally, got a decent afternoon yesterday to take some photos outside  :D






Now that I have the photos of the glider "naked", time to start some sheeting, starting with the elevator, and certainly followed by the fuselage nose cone.
Stay tuned for more  :D

Thank you all :)
Still a long way to go before that thing is finished! Did the easier part of the build! Dragging my feet to do the sheeting! :(

@ Frederic, pour le Willy Farrer, de memoire, tu as mis combien en incidence aux ailes? :)
