Kfm3 Flying Wing Build Log 02

I found some 5mm square basswood pieces, as well as some 3/16in wood dowels (about 5mm). The basswood was not as long as I hoped, while the dowels were longer than the span of the wing. I decided to take the longer dowels (I think they are pine) and fit them into the wing. The pine isn't as stiff as the basswood though, and I hope that for this small wing, it will be enough.

Tomorrow I'll be taping up the opposite side of the wing before I form the leading edge, and the pod has also been cut out from another sheet of DTF and ready for taping and forming too!
