I wasn't sure if there were formers or not, but if indeed it is just rectangles with stringers on the outside, then you are correct, no need for formers.. And really, no, no "sections" needed either as they can be taken from the plans...

Thank you, friends, for your very kind comments regarding Joyce's plane. If you look back on my previous attachments you will see the scratch built Pacific Ace she flew when we lived in Alabama. She really enjoyed flying her model and I hope she will want to fly the Spirit of St. Louis, too.

Soft landings,

Joe

Good to see you back at it Joe My guess is Joyce will enjoy her new plane, which looks great by the way, and the Spirit as well.

Thank you, Ken. Now if only I could get Joyce to make those "airplane" noises when she is in the workshop...

Soft landings,

Joe
