Like the other Hawkers the wing are very simple, just top and bottom skins and two shear webs.
The issue in the thick skin has to be significantly sanded on the inside of each skin to give a fine (scale) trailing edge and the very stiffness of the skin means it needs a lot clamps.

In fact I don't have enough to do both wings at the same time and the glue takes 24 hours to dry hard enough to be secure so two wings equals at least 2 days.
In addition the aileron servos have to be put in each wing and their the cables run though before the wing can be fixed to the fuselage.
