Here's a shot of the rest of the front ribs. Notice how they lay flat now instead of looking like skis.
Started going through the main ribsStarted going through the main ribs
All the drawings in the wing kit are of the left wing, so you have think backwards for the right wing. Here I separated the main ribs into left and right wing. I also numbered them starting at the fuselage, working my way out to the wing tip. Laying out the left wing is easy while looking at the plans. The right wing is a little trickier, requiring some reverse logic. I used my desktop scanner to make copies of the small drawings that come with the instruction manual. When I get to the right wing, I'm going pull in the left wing images into my computer and reverse them, then print them out for easier visualization.
