Pal of mine has just built Dancing Wings 1500mm DR1 Fokker. Trying to take off from grass for its maiden, the setup was marginal and it half cartwheeled. Damage was little - but was the top wing fixing. Thin ply tabs as part of the centre section ribs.

He traced out from the model a replacement whole rib with tabs .. increased tab size, and in high quality 3mm Ply instead of the Chinese Lite Ply. Gave me the JPG file, 3mm ply and I cut accurate replacements for him in my Laser machine. I have the file saved as well for future. To do that by hand would take hours ... and needs to be spot on as it also sets the CF spars.

Because he has the scrap wood from the parts sheets - he can trace any part he needs for me to laser.
