Nailed it.

Today, I finally put the first nails in the left wing - I tacked the second main rib in, and the last main rib before the tip rib (#2 and #14 out of 15 main ribs). Then I ran a bright pink string from one to the other, tensioned tight so I have a level line to make all the ribs stand at the same height on the spars.

It's looking more and more like an airplane every day!

Pictures are the best thing about reading about a super cool project!
