Wing Construction

The major feature of the Spitfire kit is the fact that the wings can be removed; this allows the plane to be put on a large car trailer for easy transport. This process can be handled by two people and completed in under an hour with a couple of hand tools. The wings are pre-drilled, cut and then bent to shape on a jig; the wing components are factory assembled to ensure everything is in correct alignment. After passing all of the assembly checks, the wings are then disassembled for flat packing. Each component is clearly marked for easy reassembly. The wings have been load tested to 6G and use conventional construction while retaining their unique shape.
