Default RE: Charlie Kellogg's TBM Avenger Build

So back to the "thin rib." I used this reinforcing technique on my Meister 109, because the wheels barely fit in that wing, too. The easiest way to do this is to bend the 2-56 wire to match the contour of the rib, then use either a small file (picture came out fuzzy, sorry) or the sharp end of the 2-56 wire itself to gouge the top of the rib. The goal is to make a recess along the top of the rib for the wire to drop into. Once all was right, this wire is just tacked in with CA.

After admiring the wing for a little while, it was time to move onto the top sheeting on the outer panels. I found a few photos, but I still need to label and resize them for posting.

Be in touch soon.

How are you coming along, Chic?
