Wing Hardware

I started making the wing hardware. I'm not quite finished yet, but so far the smallest ones were the hardest to make. These are the brackets that hold the plastic strapping material in place to serve as drag/anti-drag wires. Rather than cut each individual piece and then try to drill the holes in them, I layed them all out, then drilled the holes, and finally cut them apart.
I'm sure it was easier, but it was still a lot of work!

Total Time: 21.0 hrs.
