A few shots of what all this wing drilling is heading to. A picture is worth a 1,000 words (probably 1,000,000 in this case !) Here are a couple of shots I took of the TLAC aircraft on the recent open day… to give some idea of what the resulting wing fittings will look like
I bought the alloy root strips so these can go on once trimmed and shaped and the brackets are all completed. TLAC uses a neat spring / stop arrangement to help single handed use when opening and closing the wings. The wing peg is fitted to an alloy shaft but has a pin protruding either side .. this then catches (once turned) onto a small raised alloy right angle bracket which holds it back (ie out) whilst manoeuvring the wing into its seated position.
