Excellent work Carl! By sheer coincidence I'm about to make complete set also!

How did you apply the centre swage after turning the sides? Do you have a lot of clearance on you bead roller? Cheers, Matt

Looking at how you have made the sections it appears we have taken exactly the same approach. After trying to make the nearly 5 feet long Wing on my own, I concluded also that it needed to be two sections welded between the swages 👍

Here's how far I got with the first attempt before realising it really needs to be two sections if you don't have a helper to be the "tail" whilst wheeling
