Dragonfly 84 Build

Hello Guys ,   Just on the last leg of long time building my new plane a Dragonfly 84 it coming along nicely .   Its from a plan around 1984 ? twin IC 52 4s 95" span it said to weight in at 15 lbs , just to say that not thing on plan has been right ,from wing ribs did fit in the wing size ? wood size that you can't buy now.  well  now hope in the next two or three weeks for testing  weather gods on the right side of mars.     Here are some photos with detail which one of the jobs plus finish off and cover top wings fit up fine the next bit that needs doing .
