To shape the lower boom of the forward wing spar, I used the metal L brackets to hold the lamination in place when it glues. The curve is only in the middle of the spar and then straightens out after that. The shape looks good but I'm going to have to wait until the weather is warm enough to glue. Ah, winter...maybe I should get a space heater. I'm not skinning anything so the dry air wouldn't matter. I'll be gone for thanksgiving but I'll work on drafting some more aluminum tail hinges.
