45" Wakefield wings almost finished

Over the weekend I completed the final elliptical wingtip and tailplane and assembled the 45" wings to the EasyBuild Wakefield.

I need to add in some central strengtheners, do some more sanding and add in few triangular fillets, but the hard part is now complete.  The angle of the photo made the ribs look a bit distorted for some reason, I can assure you that they are set correctly.   The wingtips sport a 4" dihedral, but for a 12-13" wingtip isn't too severe as it first sounds.

I now need to find a large board to start constructing the rather long fuselage... onwards and upwards!
