Laser cut parts
Hand cut parts using traditional knives, saws, etc.
If you can make one 'rib' can't you make all the ribs that make up a wing?
Another opportunity is to make 'sections' and 'contours' from the model of the aircraft wing. These 'sections' become curves for ribs and stations.
How about the other parts of a plane; fuselage, horizontal stabilizer, vertical stabilizer?
Note from a few years ago: My students made 'stryrofoam' wings, horiz stabilizers, vert stabilizers, held them together with 1/4 inch dowels and flew them from the top of our high-school press box. One pair of students had a glider with a 6' wing span. email: email@example.com
