Sorry for the delay - just ran out of foam.

The wings are done, just have to install the servos.
The wing is reinforced with 3mm balsa strip glued in the form of an inverted 'T-beam' along the 2m span wing.

This reinforcement made the wing super-strong, even though the vertical and the horizontal sections of the 'T beam' are not in contact. They're glued along the top and bottom of the wings separately.

The epoxy resin container that I used for load-test weighs 678 grams. I expect the total weight of the glider to be less than 600 grams.
And the wing weighs 178 grams - without servos.

Also, the glider and the tailplane looks proportional now
