Boeing 747SP – Update #10

The first set of wings have been shaped, with a few refinements to be made. In order to ensure near to perfect symmetry, for the wing profile and their alignment with the horizontal and vertical stabilisers, I’ve added a jig to keep everything aligned whilst I complete the final shaping of the wings. My jigs are not quite as complex and perfect as those found in the Boeing factory, but they will be suffice to ensure the finished aircraft is aesthetically pleasing and symmetrical when viewed, especially now I have a couple more 747’s to make.

The wings will also be removable for this scale, so they must be fitted precisely to ensure there are no gaps where the wing butts up to the fuselage, and keep the right dihedral. Can’t wait to get started on the engines next, but its looking more like a 747SP now.
