for finding the right spot to fix the wings i think i will construct a spar that also fixes the dihedral of the wings. so next i cut out the wings and the main wheel wells. the wells will be boxed in for strenght and to have a locating point for the spar

wings and fuselage temporarily joint. there is a locating spar inside and a bulkhead in the middle to keep everything square. glue is now drying overnight, then i will drill locating pins into the wings from the inside
