Default Tower Kaos 40 rib templates

Does anyone have rib templates for the Tower Kaos 40, or tracings?
I have the plans and want to scratch build one.

Would tracings on manila folder do? There are 11 ribs, each different. I bought the kit, scratch built one from the templates, still have the original kit minus the canopy and some sheeting.
Canopy available from Tower, part # TOWA6014 for $2.35.

If this will work, PM me your mailing address and it will be on the way. Also add email addy, I might be able to answer any questions.

I made tip and root patterns and stack sanded mine. If you don't have any luck finding a set, PM me and I'll cut you a set with jig holes cut for the cost of wood and postage. The kit wood stunk and I replaced the majority. Should just scratch-built the thing to start with.

I have sent the templates to Bruce. Thanks for all the other input.

I guess kits can vary, the wood in my kit was excellent, could be a collector's item someday. I advise my friends that if they get bad pieces, just call the company. They don't want you to have to mess with poor quality items...right Bax?? When I first got my kit, the leading edge pieces and the ailerons were broken, I called and got the replacement pieces immediately. That's what customer support is all about.

By the way, the reason I am so loyal to Tower and GP is, if I'm not 100 % satisfied, I can return it for refund or replacement with no hassle.
