Congrats!!! Hoping to get there this year myself. Maybe even this summer, if things go really well.

Default Wings are done

Finally. I thought I would never get here. Lucy's wings are done. Plus due to a fudged hole, I completely disassembled the Horizontal Stab and rebuild the skeleton using new forward spars, inboard ribs, reinforcement angles and doubler plates so the service bulletin is also done.
The factory is all cleaned and prepped and the fuse starts tomorrow

That's a great feeling to have another kit under the belt - way to go. Some people find the fuse kit much more interesting than the wings but I enjoyed the wings as much as the fuse, plus they took less time. Just compare the thickness of the plans...Good luck!

Default Flap spars

I was wondering if anyone would notice. They (2) made a great plans stand. I clekoed them to the cradle so the whole rig comes off in a few seconds.

I too have a couple of not-so-perfect holes after installing the stab SB but with all those extra rivets, I think it will be ok.

If I were to do it again, I'd consider Cherry-Max for some of the more difficult locations (permitted by the SB).
