Default RE: 1/4 Scale F4U-1A Don Smith Plans Build

Thanks for the good news that came to late. The ribs are already glued in place on the right wing tip panel. I did line everything up before gluing anything in place. I inserted the wing tube thru a couple ribs of the tip panel and then did a test fit of the tube and dowels with the center section rib # 11. All line up well so I glued the ribs in place. Plus I don't use CA glue and you can't tack glue with Elmers carpenters glue. You can have that finger covering CA but I'll stick to what I like best. I like to be able to adjust things after the glue is applied such as if they are a true 90 degrees.
