Miss Canada Senior, Wings nearly complete

Since receiving the Miss Canada Senior 36" wingspan model kit back in May I have been distracted and not been able to devote much time to model building.  However, this weekend I found enough time to sand down the tail and wing surfaces and finally glue the main wings together.

My main quibble with the main wing design is that the left and right wings really require more strengthening when joining them together with the required dihedral, and I am still wondering if I need to put ply supports in just to make sure the wing is fully rigid at the centre.

I need to just to add the triangular wing fillets to ensure the wings won't warp and then they are ready for covering.  I think I will do the wing tips, tail and stabilizer in red with the rest of the wing and fuselage in white.
