Default Working with a Plan


So it seems that I "need" a glider to take advantage of the strong winds. I have located a plan, it's called a Baby TG3. It is my first scratch build, and I would like to have some tips to build the wing and the fuselage.

OK, imagine that I have finished cutting all the parts, where would I start from the wing?

Cutting out the ribs and spacing them out on the bottom spar. This will give you an idea of how the trailing and leading edges are attached and shaped. Also how the wings mount to the fuse. Do you have a link to the plans so we can take a look at them or possibly scan some sections and post the images here?
