A Steen Skybolt

built in Sydney, Australia


Building the wing ribs is the first part of the wing assembly. I was fortunate to be able to buy a very high quality set of pre assembled wing ribs for the upper wing, though these will need some modification given I am building the delta variant.

The building here took me about 3 months – I had a lot of work travel – in order to complete the lower wing ribs. It is quite repetitive, but good fun and you are able to see progress each time you punch out another rib.
