    So, speaking of things to come - I would encourage you to practice the A line attachment points. The rest of the rib attachments are not too bad, but the A-line attachments are probably my least favorite part of the entire process because they are tough to get right.

    Also, the rib stiffeners may be something that you want to practice just a bit first. Once you figure out how you want to align them, they are really pretty easy, but still. . .

    I have done the stiffeners first and attachment points second, and attachment points first then stiffeners and there is not too much benefit to one way over the other (at the A-line point there is an overlap of the attachment and stiffener). So, try both and see which you like better. It will depend a little upon your sewing machine and a little on personal preference.

    Good luck!

    I'm applying all of the lessons I've learned thus far. Expediting the process considerably.
    Major lesson learned....KEEP EVERYTHING ORGANIZED

    Yes, how true. Fantastic! With any luck, I have saved all of you from a LOT of lessons learned - my wife can even attest to the difficulty I have encountered getting to this point. Now it's time to have fun!

    Thanks for sharing, Mythradites!

    Great job mythradites! That is looking like a beautiful wing! For me, the outer panels are difficult to sew, so I'm taking my time there

    Finally where I was on the first wing. I plan on using the first one to practice attaching lines and stitching the ribs.

    Wingtips and trailing edge DONE!

    It may not be perfect but it'll get the job done. Not too shabby for my first week of sewing.
    Note: I also triple stitched the wingtips for strength, using black thread it may be difficult to see on the black wingtip.
