The Flivver wing design I decided to make in a slightly more traditional method with individual ribs to create the old fashioned scale wing look with ribs portruding through the skin. All in all it is very simple and quick to make. The ribs are cut out with a razor blade. A yardstick is bisected lengthwise for the central spar and glued into place, then the ribs are added on top of the spar. One side is completed on a flat surface at a time. The next shots are how the plan is transferred to wax paper, and then onto the foam for building.
Then the wing is framed up….
The aileron rod holes are punched prior to covering with wet paper and wood glue.
…..next the ailerons get cut out, and rigged.
