Rogallo wing construction continued….

Here are some more pics of the wing being framed….

 

These two thimbles have a wire attached which pass through a hole in the front of the triangular fitting to keep them in place, but still allow them to pivot when needed to retract.

 

This shows the wires pulled through and twisted.

 

Here is what it looks like fitted to the fuselages’ mast.

 

A frontal view…..

 

And finally a view of the metal bands that attach the fore/aft member. These will be drilled for bolts, and another shelf added for the horizontal member with bands and bolts as well.
