Many older planes whose plans were featured in RCM Magazine used the commercially available "Ace Foam Wing". The articles never stated the wing span.

Here is some information from a person who provides the wing cores on E-Bay

I'm not sure if this fits, but a fellow on E-Bay makes "Ace Wing Cores"

The span is 35-inches

Quote:
