Ilyushin IL-102 build - wings and engines

Last night the Good Lady Wife and I cut the wings for the '102, here they are on the bench after being cleaned up :


Stubby little things aren't they?  Don't forget they are missing their TE's, LE's, and some quite chunky tips with down-trurns, just like the A10.  I sanded a spar slot into the underside of the wing for a spruce spar that is 1/4" wide by 3/8" deep :


The only thing left to do here is to make the parallel chord centre section, then things can start being glued together.  

I have started to shape the engine intakes this afternoon whilst the exhaust sections dry :
