I got the remaining of the ribs rough-cut out and ready to be sanded to there final shape:

Here is the stack of 17 wing ribs.. total weight 38oz. Before you start going HOLY )*() thats heavy, remember, this is THREE sets of wing ribs (12.6oz per wing rib set). 10 of the 17 have are 3/32" over-size and still need all of the lightening holes cut out. You can start to see the swooping shape of the wing at this point as well. That root wing rib is nearly 36" long and 6" tall!



Here is the stacks of finished (right) and rough cut (left) wing ribs. The finished stack weights 7.5oz (2.5oz per wing set) and the left weights 30.5 ounces (10.17 oz per wing set).



And my partner in crime with this project sent me two photo's of the center section so far.. And before you ask, no that tape measure isn't metric!
