I have been getting towards the end of what I need to do right now for the metal work so have started on some woodwork. This is a first for me. Aside from minor building around the house I have never done anything like this.

Started with the some templates for the Ribs for the centre section. Is the delta wing there is four timber ribs and two 4130 steel compression members. The middle section stays open for the top wing fuel tank. The pic below is the start of the forming of the middle and main two ribs. This two primary are 1 and 1/4 inches wide. I will use the templates to form the actual rib sides from 1/8″ ply.

PS> I know I know….. I need to get something done about my electrical situation. The 4 banger in the back is no good. I need to get my sparky mate out to run some power points.
