Dizzie welcome to Wattflyer interesting plane you are building. I am looking forward to following your progress. Saw this plane at Old Rhinebeck Aerodrome if I recall correctly.

Dizzie great use of available material to build your ribs the coffee shop is good for more things than just the java.
Here is a link with a bunch of pics from the Aerodrome that PD1 took, and I added to itif you are interested. Judging from this build and the plans hanging on the wall looks like you like the older planes.
