Default Sterling Fokker D7- 58" WS

Hello,
I am looking for any information that any of you may have regarding rib templates for this kit. I acquired a partially built Sterling Fokker D7 w/o wing ribs. There unfortunately no rib templates shown on the plans. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

If you look at the profile layout of the airplane you will see the rib profiles at the center section. Since the wings are constant chord, make a basic template to cut the ribs and revise them accordingly to match each rib position.

Thank you very much for your information Michael. I did find out that the ribs have a constant chord, though is seems as though the last one at the wing tip is somewhat reduced in size.

Right. Apply the "TLAR" method (That looks About Right) and you should be fine.
