Thanks for the Drop box, Cliff.

My PM's are are still hanging up in the Outbox, so you're not getting them, Cliff.

I've dragged and dropped the photos into the box.

Is there a Send button somewhere?

OK. So the drawing of what I took to be a wing elevation, turned out to be the profile of the wing spar. :oops:

Now I have begun to lay out all of the parts so I can make sure that I get the wing joiner right.

I appear to be short number 1 rib.

The fuselage instructions seem to be saying that I have to make that rib myzelf.

The ribs I have appear to mount on to the fuselage as they have slots for tabs on the frames.

So, do I have to cut another number 1 rib (leaving out the tab slots)?

Or have I taken myself up the garden path again?

Cheers

Max, Rib 1 is that same as the root rib, I can send them to you but it would be quicker for you to use the root rib as a template and cut the yourself. It is strange that it is not there as it is cut from the same sheet as the rest of the 3mm ply!

Thanks, Cliff.

I've tipped all of the bags out, but no joy.

I have a friend with a cutter. Shouldn't be a problem.

Cheers

Max/Cliff,
I would have thought that the wing root ribs don’t have the fuselage slots as Max says, but also doesn’t have the wing retainer clearance apertures - otherwise you have no rib material to mount the retainers into ;)

What I should have said Peter is that the outline of the root rib is the same as rib 1, just cut the outline! Max, you should be able to draw around the rib and use a bandsaw.

You're right, Peter.

The apertures are solid in wing rib 1, but I want to make sure that the wing joiner slots are cut as accurately as possible.
