Wing Hatch Bottom

After putting the fuselage & wing together a few times I decided to follow the advise of Wayne Siewert & add a hatch to the bottom of the wing. The hatch will be used to pull the servo wires & retract plastic tubing from the fuselage into the wing after they are connected together.
