Hello my friends, a small build update to satisfy Draco and Siwi's curiosity about the wing lintel theme.

In my approach I changed the use of the former I, first because its use would make the use of other formers unfeasible, second because it is not clear in the instructions, then my suggestion of indicating it in the positioning of the formers in the side view of the fuselage, so yes, at first I forgot about it, but then the mistake turned into an advantage.

The change of approach was to transform the former into a support lintel, for that with a milling cutter we drilled at low speed from end to end the formers D and E, we inserted the lintel obtained from former I which was glued with reinforced vinyl glue UHU, later a second set of pieces also from the former I was used as reinforcement, this time glued with CA glue, and the problem was solved. An old technique from my plastic scratchbuilding days.

Be prepared to trim the reinforcement on this part to fit the formers for the lower wing. There are some 'airfoil' shaped pieces, one of which slots over this spar made by piece I to connect it to the wing spar former W1

Thanks for advice, but like Stranraer I think you are right some connections need improvisations. I resume the model in the weekend
