This is a kit for flat, unformed, cut to shape aluminum rib blanks, as well as the MDF form blocks required to form the ribs with your own two hands. These ribs fit both the Thatcher CX5 & CX7 aircraft designs.
This will save you substantial time in measuring and cutting rib blanks, as well as making form blocks.
All the parts are manufactured on CNC machining equipment and are held to a close tolerance. There are minor variances from the hand-drawn plans to suit manufacturing, but the airfoil shape, and structure of the ribs are identical.
