The wing is now in one piece and has a carbon fiber rod installed as the spar. I still need to do some filling and sanding on it to make it nice and smooth. Next, I'll make a wing cradle for the fuselage on which it will sit since it is a highly cambered airfoil.

I like the progress so far, shaping up real nice. Where are your servos going for the flaperons? Whenever Ive gone from scratch I always find myself figuring out the controls at the end, instead of a plan. It's gotten easier on each successive build, but still stumps me at times.
The servos will be under the wing. I don't think I can fully recess them due to the thin wing, but I'm not worried about it. This plane has a longer wingspan than a Hobbyzone Super Cub and will weigh much less. I've decided to use the same brushless motor I have in my HZ SC with an 8x4E prop since I have one of those motors available at the moment. This thing should get around pretty well!
I'm making a form for the cowling from XPS foam. I didn't have a scrap piece of wood large enough to carve and use to heat shrink a bottle over. So, I'm going to lay up fiberglass. The cloth I have is really thin, so I'm not sure how rigid it will be when done. Its going to take several layers.
