15th-16th June 1946: my first split, transportable, model aircraft wings - spruce dowels & balsa tubes
15 Sat. Mild, rain all morning, then more showers: cloudy, but a few glimpses of sunshine. Bought vegetables in morning. Bought fish at Merton. Small amount of weeding in garden. Made two balsa tubes and fitted as sockets to aero wing. Fitted them, also spruce dowels to other wing so that they can be fitted together or taken apart to take up less room in transport: the first divided wing I have made for myself.
16 Sun. Cool, some sunshine early, but heavy clouds and showers later. Short walk along Coombe Lane in evening to see the front gardens: the roses are coming out better now.
