Nifty.

How are you dealing with the rigging attachments to the wing? Are those short pieces of tubing receiving the thread or what exactly?

those are circles of 1/64 ply I pop out with a paper punch after I drill a small hole in the ply. I glue them on the covering with CA then I can thread the rigging through top and bottom.

Thanks for that detail, I did something similar but different under the covering on my recent Fokker Eindecker build, I was curious how other people make a rigging position. For mine I slid a small slat of bamboo into the structure. It is built up so it sits just beneath the tissue and has a hole drilled. While adding the covering, I glued the tissue to the slats. I haven't done the rigging yet, I will put a photo in that thread when I get it ready.
