The wings were a difficult building situation for me as we were living in a very old, small military housing unit with no garage.  Over a two year period, the wings were built one at a time in a bedroom-turned-shop in the house.  The wing kit parts, and later the finished control surfaces, fuel tanks, etc were stored in virtually every room in the house.  Some parts hanging on the walls, others on shelves, and raw stock angle/tubing/etc hanging from storage hooks in the living room ceiling.....yes, I have a very understanding wife.

The wing pages cover a little bit of the process, but in hindsight I wish I had taken more pictures as I went along!  This page shows thumbnails of what is on each of the wing pages in this web.  Click on the links to get to a particular page, or on the picture to see a larger version of any of the pictures.
