Careful!
Carl Goldberg SU-26 Sukhoi

I'm attempting to complete a build of a Carl Coldberg Sukhoi that has been sitting in its box for 12+ years. My brother started to build it and did not build according to the plans. The wing was partially built but the ribs got severe hangar rash and are all but disintegrated. I was able to mostly re-create their shape by tracing the shards of wood, but the tabs that were originally on the ribs for fine tuning the wings washout were no longer on them, and the trailing edges were all missing. The plans don't have rib templates, so I'm having great difficulty recreating these things. Does anyone have any tracings of theirs that might help me re-create this wing? Or an un-built wing kit? The Goldberg site has the ribs listed but you can't purchase them anymore.

Jim
