adding wing center section


I have a built up wing- ARF that is supposed to be glued together with a 1/4 spar in it as well. what would you guys do to add 2 1/5 inches to the middle to make the wingspan longer. 2 1/5" is a little much to just make a buch of plywood ribs. any help appreciated. Ryan

your best bet would be to make templets of the root ribs and make duplicates glue them in and sheet the section

A block of foam could be used and shaped to suit, then a glass bandage wrapped around for strength.
