    I've posted pictures of these ribs and tail feathers a while back, hoping someone might recognize them, and tell me what plane they go to.
    I have all the ribs, and with the feathers already done, it would be a good head start on a airplane.
    Just dont know what kind.
    Does anyone know what these go to, or any other place I could ask?

    There are so many designs that are virtual copies of each other (intentional or not, I don't know) that it is impossible to say from just a few pictures.

    If the cord length is about 54” and undercambered then it could be one of Roger Mann’s designs. He used both under undercamber and flat bottom. However the tail group looks a little modified.

    The ribs are a little different too. Are all the ribs identical?

    There are a few that are a little different, but I think those were simply not finished. I'm going to look a little closer.

    Nope, not FRED, which uses a particularly undercambered Goe 535 airfoil.
