    I've talked to my friend. Sadly, it's just a bit too far away for him to bite. Say's he's never worked on a civilian model anyway.

    If it has sails and they aren't stretched out or malformed in any way, someone may be able to cut them apart to pattern and sew a new set for you. The hard part would probably be finding someone...

    I was thinking the same, stripe needs to start fatter, but I'm having a hard time picturing that looking right without making the ring around the cowling thicker too, which might start looking odd.

    I'm still not clear on the process of epoxying a rib to the spar. Like, the physical process of applying epoxy under the rib before nailing. Some pictures would be helpful if anyone has them.
