Ilyushin IL-102 build - wing spar
I Gorilla glued in the main spar to both wing panels this morning, and by lunch, the glue had done its stuff.
I had already put the masking tape down to protect the foam from any spillage, so it was sanding time. A quick blitz with the big Permagrit, then down to a rubber block with fine on it, and we're just about there.
Once I knock the glue back on the other panel tonight, I will get the veneer onto them which I have already cut to shape and prepped. With a bit of luck I'll get the centre section done and veneered too, then we're a lot closer to getting things complete.
