Dave, I'm impressed with your wing stands. I'm puzzled, though, how you are going to do the fabric covering on the outboard ends. Maybe you've got that figured out. I'm curious: how are you planning to do that? Cheers, Ken
Here's how I handled the outboard wing rotator. I drilled a hole through the wing bow where the weight was approximately balanced and then installed a T-Nut on the inner face of the wing bow. I inserted a threaded rod from the wing to the rotator stand. A picture will make this clearer. Later, when the wings were finished and about ready for paint, I glued a hardwood dowel into the hole in each of the outer wing bows. Cheers, Ken
