Southern Cross Replica Wing Progress

Southern_Cross_underwing_skin_1The lower wing skin is now complete except for a couple of inspection and drain holes which will be installed prior to the epoxy varnish coating.  The wing needs to be rolled over to give access to the upper side.  This will likely take place in early February.  The wing will then go back pretty much where it is now.  The centre section will again be supported along with cradles and tie downs out near the wing tips   The wing is very true.  We can look forward to fitting the top skins soon.  This is an exciting leap forward for the restoration of this magnificent replica.
