Wing Tip (Part Two)

Well, it's official. I'm definitely NOT building a fiberglass airplane any time soon! It guess it started out kind of fun, but all the sanding and filling in order to get the fiberglass surface perfectly smooth seems like it took forever! I think the bottom came out better than the top (which is a good thing, because pretty much only the bottom will be visible when it's all assembled), but fiberglass work sure is messy, and not very much fun after all.

Oh and by the way, the left wing as it sits (without the aileron, cables, pulleys, etc.)
weighs about 36 pounds at this point.

Total Time: 16.5 hrs.
