1/2" plywood was first cut into strips to form the ribs.
Each rib measures 1/2" X 3/4" and are 44 inches long.
All ribs (12) were placed into the notches cut into the centering
Since the nose cone base and shoulder were also ready to go they were
fitted on too.
Locking it all down
Each rib is tied to the main bulkhead with a 2" long wood screw.
All ribs and centering ring notches were wet out with straight epoxy
to prevent resin starvation.
Thickened epoxy was used to attach the ribs to the rings.
Wraps of tape hold the whole thing together wihile the epoxy sets.
