For those of you that have been looking for plans for the Gee Bee QED, Doc has a set that he might be able to get to you.
You can contact him though this Forum.
He is a great guy and I am sure that he will work with anyone that would like to get their hands on a set of these plans and BTW Fiberglass Specialties still makes the Fiberglass Cowl and Wheel Pants for this beautiful bird.

I hope I am not too late here, I have a Miss Los Angeles I bought pre-built, and her wing is made much the same as your GeeBee in your photos, 2 main spars, 1 upper spar and 1 lower spar, well my wing flexed a lot, it really needed shear webbing,

see more GeeBee QED photos here

I really hope I am wrong about your wing !!

I added ply boxes around my spars for added strength.

you are doing a good job there, that wing with all that sheeting should be much stronger than my Miss Los Angeles wing
