In order to inset the engine into the wing, I had to carve out a good chunk of "leading edge." The rib is to add stiffness to the wing, like another fuselage would on an F-82. That outboard edge was awfully floppy until it was added.

Ok. Found the old rocket stuff. However, there was no nose cone. So a piece of bamboo shiskebob skewer and a few laminated disks later:

Still working it...first coat of sealer top and bottom. I'll probably sand a bit tonight, seal more tomorrow am, and then work a color or two onto it to check compatibility with the sealer...Deft:2019 CEF Run What YA Brung UNLIMITED speed contest Build Log by 944_Jim - Page 2 Img_2135
