New wings
« on: July 23, 2014, 08:14:03 PM »
Here are the first set of nose ribs I built for NC41620.

The parts were built using original ribs from N41706 s/n 415 which i bought the termite infested remains of for parts.
N41706 sat outside at Long Beach (California) airport for a number of years (About 1976 to 1982)and rotted into the ramp. And yes it actually had termites!

All of the wood rotted beyond repair, however it was useful for parts and patterns.

I have compared the ribs in the slat area of the wing to their Helton counterparts and they differ in airfoil cross section to the 1942 Culver parts I have.

Hi all,

I am just finishing the last detail work on the new left wing before installing the leading edge skins and wing walk skin.

I just realized that I do not have a reference on how the pitot tube attaches to the wing.

Also, I do not have a pitot tube.

Can someone help me with this?

Dan

Dan,  I just realized that only one of the picture I tried to send you attached.  Also, I should have removed the triangle shape inspection plate to allow viewing of the pitot tube attachment.  On my first Cadet the pitot tube were attached to the center of the inspection plate.  This on appears to attached to the wing rib.  I will take more picture and try sending them again.   Tim
