I'm looking at doing some fairly major surgery on at least one of my wings (center section is good. Three wings I haven't looked at yet but because of this wings loose glue joints I'll be looking in those too, I had planned on recovering them anyway so hope they aren't as bad as this one as far as damage or loose joints) anyway I thought I'd see if anyone had a wing kit for the Starduster Too laying around or ribs? Several of these are Ok but I might just build a new wing. I'm up in the air now on repair or build new or take this one apart and use what I can, like the forward spar, and reglue everything after its all removed and cleaned up etc. kinda a feeler for what's out there...anything?

There is a Starduster project listed at Newton (KEWK). I "think" it was primarily wing parts. If you call the airport the staff could get you the phone number. I don't know anything more about it.

I have only built stick ribs until now. What is the recommended plywood for the ply ribs in a Starduster? ACS lists 1/4 domestic Mahogany for ~$245 a sheet and 6MM Okume for ~$100.
What other sources are people using?
