Wing Tank Part Three

Posted on Updated on

The RS-5891 plywood bottom is cut to shape and glued to the RS-9 supports and drag brace. Unlike the plans I decided to extend the rear of the floor to the rear spar by gluing an extension to the plywood.

Two RS-4 are glued to the ply in front of and behind the tank to keep it from sliding forward and aft.

A RS-3  is glued between rib #2 and #3 to reinforce rib #2.
