Default Cloud ranger build by newer builder

Currently building as my second model, per the wing construction directions it only has the rear innermost bottom sheeting going on prior to installing the dihedral shear web, do we just take the chance floating the brace to accommodate for the front piece of sheeting or do I partially glue the front sheeting on to fit the brace in and then finish attaching at the appropriate time? Can attach pics if needed

It's hard to imagine, I don't have the kit, also probably why others haven't responded. Looking at the downloaded pdf instruction manual, I'd say you should just follow the instructions. You're not "floating" anything. Normally, you build one half, then build the other half. Sand the wing root so that leading edge, trailing edge and spar all match up, then glue the dihedral brace and wing halves together. Hope this helps. Looks like a nice kit.

Photos are almost always helpful. I've had planes where the instructions didn't seem to make sense until one step or another and then it just kind of clicked and I could see how it worked. You may also find threads on other forums.
(Edit) LOL, just went to look at the rest of the 1/2 a threads and saw that you had been to the build thread for the same kit just below.
