Rearwin spar blanks

Don Dickson and Wayne Belcher have begun working on building the wings for the Rearwin. This picture shows the old spars lying on top of and beside a new set of spar blanks. The blanks will be carved and trimmed to match the original spars, and then will serve as the basis for the rebuilt wings.

Rearwin rib jig and rib components

The team has also built a set of rib jigs (for the upper and lower wings) and started building ribs. This picture shows the upper rib jig with a rib being assembled. On the far side of the table is a stack of components, including cap strips and nose ribs, on top of (and pretty much hiding) the lower rib jig.
