My first build here on GSN, so let's get it started. I started building the ribs last winter while recovering from back surgery. There are a total of 50 pieces in each rib. I made is jig out of 3/4" plywood. I think the maximum ribs produced in a day was three since I was using...

As soon as my glue supplies come I will be starting the construction of my Balsa SC. I have seen different ones reference scale flaps & ailerons and have seen several on youtube with them. I Googled them and came up with nothing. Where are they available from? Dave

I just got my 1/3 scale Balsa USA SC kit today. This will be my first giant scale build and the 1st build for me in about 25 years. Is it best to go with Balsa USA house brand glue or should I consider a generic brand that may be just as good if not better and a lot cheaper? Also, Appx. how much do I need for the...
