Pfalz d.xii rib stitching

Postby Steve Mansell » May 2nd, 2019, 8:40 pm

Hi, the wings on my latest build have ribs, half ribs, and riblets. On these WW1 German types was stitching applied to all ribs, or just main and half ribs? I've got fairly good documentation, but no good pictures of the leading edge that resolve the fabric stitching.
Cheers
Steve

You might want to contact the chaps who developed the pc game "Rise of Flight", as their artwork is superb, and might give some clues in this regard. Unfortunately I can't do a screenshot myself, as I had to uninstall it when Win 10 porked my joystick.

Thanks Tim, their forum is an Aladdin's cave of information. They even have a forum dedicated to the Pfalz d.xii
Following some of the links on their site I have got the info that's good enough for my purpose. Rib tapes on main ribs, nothing on riblets.
Cheers
Steve
