CR, could you explain what we are looking at here. Is this a section of wing rib with flat sheet web and riveted cap strip? I am just trying to visualize the whole assembly. Cheers, Matthew

Yes, I taught him well. I remember all those long conversations in the 60's on the Internet showing him what was what, "Build a small jet I told him, people will love you for it". Yes, I remember it well.

Because of my rib system, I can simply laser cut all those individual ribs out with ease, I no need no steekin form blocks.
