The wing repair.
Not a lot of damage to the wing but decided to reinforce it.
Cut back the covering and tape it out of the way for now.
Cut out the damaged parts, offset the cut to keep strength of original wing.
Used some balsa leading edge to reinforce the fix.
New parts fitted and using the old cut out bits repair the wing.
CA the covering back once the repair has been sanded smooth, all done in about two hours.
Power testing next, then get a new spinner, I may go for a folding prop.
test flight with landing gear...
