    Correct Frank. The original had a flat face on the cut out. I am doing my best to replicate it.

    I have finally completed engineering and assembly of the root end of the right upper wing.

    I'm continuously impressed on how you're elevating the basic plans and "kit" to something really special.

    Refresh my memory - are you going to have the center section cut out and mounted permanently with the cabanes and slide these wings into it, or the standard two big pieces to slide together?

    Frank, if I understand your question, the wing is split in the center. The rear spar slips between the two plates on top of the rear cabane A frame.

    That's why the face plate on the pilot cutout does not go all the way to the end of the spar.

    Here is a photo of the sheet I added to the bottom, for access to the nuts and for the cabane mount plate to fit.

    The whole section not covered by aluminum in this area will remain open.

    The "design" I came up with will not require a large panel to be removable to access the centerline bolts. Just this opening in the back, and small access doors in the covering for access to the front nuts.

    Did this answer your question?

    Actually, you answered the question without quite understanding it!

    Jeff's Nieuport 17 actually has a permanent section where the center section always stays on, and he has a sort of splinting system to slide the wings onto them.

    Yours is like mine in that's it's two wings that meet in the middle all by themselves.

    We were supposed to be out of town this weekend, but plans got changed. Today Rose and I started on the aileron leading edge.

    I made a test piece for the wing aileron cutout. Looks pretty good.
