Thanks for the offer James. I am going to make one so I have it on hand for the next wing. I finished building the pilot wing wiring harness at Phils on Saturday - now to install. Still waiting for my nav lights. Coming along nicely. I hope to get in about 20 hours in this week.

Finished crimping (made a crimping tool) and installed the wing tip. Now I need to install the nav lights (on order) and complete final assembly - then do it all over again on the next wing..

Andrew, surely the boys at Zynkraal are nearly finished with your toy? Any photos of progress to date for inspiration?

Hi I did try and post a pic or two but they are too large I will try and make them smaller and then I will try and start my own thread instead of hijacking Conrads.I spent a few days @ Zynkraal this week and can report that the wings are on.

Awesome news Andrew! (^^) (^^) I will be one of the first onlookers begging for a flip! -0<

As summer approaches and the weather warms up, I am looking forward to spending some long hours in my garage. Building this winter in my cold garage wasn't great.

Well after a long cold winter, summers here and it's time to get cracking with my build. I spent last night cleaning my garage and getting ready to finish the wing this weekend. My nav lights have arrived from Bundu - looking good.

This weeks update.

I have removed the top skin off the pilot wing, installed all brackets, pitot tube, fuel tank and started reinstalling. Man this wing is taking forever.
