        The wings on both planes are covered so photos won’t help now.

      Hi John, have you any pics of the wing build, yes I've a wood wing too, do the ribs sit on full height wood fillets or just screwed to the cap strips ???
      my fuselage is nearly finished, but as some of the kit went missing after years in storage I'm using UK sourced round tube in places, looks more substantial !!!

        My iPad died. Got dropped on a corner in an airport and cracked the screen. I probably have photos of the uncovered wing in my photos. You should have a wing drawing with locations if spars, ribs, drag/anti drag pieces, diagonals, etc.

      Hi John, here in the UK I', building a alloy frame LMA Taylorcraft, see Rag & Stick section , I'm finding the build manual 'lacking' in many areas with very poor descriptions on how to achieve
      the core structures. would you have any pointers that would help my build, Alan.

        Flywheel1935, contact me at johnwadmaniii@hotmail.com. Mine was a 87% wood and fabric 2-place model but I’m pretty sure the wings on all are the same wood design. I’ve seen several aluminum models and am familiar with the airframe construction.

        Typed you an in-depth explanation but too many characters. Won’t print it. You have to email me. I’ll send you screen shots of my wing plan and sketches.
