Very little progress today, I glued some balsa blocks for the wing tips.

The wing tips now have all the balsa blocks in place ready for sanding.
I also cut and glued all the cup-strips.

I sanded the wing tip balsa blocks to shape. I also glued some balsa strips nest to the servos so the covering will have something to hold into.
Next I sanded the whole wing as it is nearing completion.

My OCD got hold on me and I had to fix the "holes" I had wrongly cut at the bottom of the wing. I was also annoyed by the few imperfections after sanding, so I used filler to fix that as well.The plans do not have provision for hinge blocks, but I think the area in contact with the hinge is reasonably small, so I decided to insert blocks where access is still available.
