Spar tangs

Finished the last spar, and started drilling holes in the tangs, before mounting them on the spar. A machined piece of aluminium is used see below,that will be riveted into the compression strut, joining the two spars. Two types of tangs are visible here, the thinner ones for the internal (in the wing) drag and anti drag cables, and the thicker ones for the landing and lift cables.

Will show you tomorrow what the fully assembled spars look like 🙂
