Estes Skydart II #3229 Build, Part 6, Wing Piece Fit

When dry fitting, I was surprised by the gap between the wing pieces. I didn't over sand the sides when cleaning up the burnt edges.

The center triangle piece was glued on first using the burnt in center alignment line.

Here's a close up of the stepped edge. The back end will be sanded even with the edge of the triangular piece.

With the curved leading edge matched at the top, the two-piece rudder wasn't even on the root edge. For gluing flat on the wing you'll want the bottom edges even.
It'd be best to glue the bottom edge flat then sand and match up the curved leading edge after the glue dries.
