Air-100h root formers


Had several ideas on how to connect the wings but I decided to make up a pair of ply formers consisting of  two 1/4" thick balsa and one 1/8" thick spruce plywood material. The 1/8" material will be placed inboard opposite of eachother to carry the model load. The extra thickness allows the outboard balsa surface to be sanded down to match the fuselage contour.
Both formers are stuck together with double stick tape and drilled together for the wing rod tube and anti rotation pins. Setting up these datums now will allow a cleaner line up when it comes time to match the wings up to the root.

Next up is tracing and routing out the fuselage former pockets.
