Rib Caps

Posted on Updated on

I decided to glue some 1/16″ ply to the tops of the wing ribs for two reasons. First it looks nicer and after spending so much time building this I want it to look great. Second it will double the glue surface for the fabric.

Each cap is 1/2″ wide and was cut from an RS-539 that I broke when bending it for the noise skin.
