        Either side will work, the ribs all point the same direction, hinge brackets are all the same too. This is for Peter, and we are also having problems with finding non-expired resorcinol, Wicks is not expecting any for a month or 2, so it maybe I will be finding some aerodux...

              For clarity (and the avoidance of doubt) Ray, aileron ribs are the same, pre-war or post-war. Unless anyone knows different?

                I have a set of ailerons with built up ribs. So, it appears they made them for at least one airplane.

                  I think the A model, and maybe early B models had built up aileron ribs. They switched to stamped aileron ribs long before they did for the wing.
