    I was told that some aircraft companies building wood wings were totally assembled and just
    before covering, they were dipped in big vats of varnish ... everything. I love the video of a

Keri, really enjoyed looking over the photos of your work on the wood Cub wings. I have not seen the Cub Club Cub plans. How much of your build do you have completed? There is a guy at work that built a PnP that won a number of awards at Oshkosh. He keeps it at the airport our EAA group hosts its meetings. Beautiful plane. How much time do you have on you PnP? I look forward to following the rest of your build. There are some significant differences between the wood and metal wings. I am not a Cub history buff so I do not know if the changes are by age or if they were specifically for the metal spar. The immediate difference is the location of the "H" shaped drag strut assembly. The entire "H" is located next to the rib and your assembly straddles the rib. The pulley routing is probably similar. Thank you for the help you have offered. Maybe we will runinto each other when we get our projects flying. Till then good luck with you build. Joseph Begany
