Hoverking Wing Progress

 templates on 1/16" plywood

wing plan and rib templates - notice the right panel is a mirror image of the left

Old riblets (top) and new output from the revised template - Simply added 1/8" to the back of the riblet template. (Gilbert called his nose ribs "riblets".

Hoverking wing detail for 1/8" balsa shear web and W-1N riblet coming in the spar caps by 1/8"
I thought a lot about this because I wanted the shear webs to tie it all together.

Well, that about all for now. I should be stack-sanding the balsa ribs soon.

Very truly yours,
