Filed Scarf Joint On Left Wing
Here is a pic of the scarf joint I created. You need to file down the forward edges, where the main skins overlap, to allow for a smooth transition over the fuel tank. I filed the edges, at an angle, until I got the result I wanted. In this shot, I'm holding a scrap piece of aluminum, above the joint to check the transition.
Here is a down vertical shot, after the filing. See the overlap?
