Rear longerons

Using the same routing jig, I cut the rear upper longerons and set them in place.

Here's a close up of the splice. Next step here is to run some brass screws into the splice, glue and clamp. Then, the whole assembly gets wrapped and varnished. The jig does a really good job of making the angles exact.

Here's another view looking aft. I have to cut out the tail post slot in the longerons yet.
