Can´t you use the sanding method? make the smaller and larger ribs in plywood, cut the inner in balsa, make a sandwich and sand until you have all the ribs in between flush. Repeat mirrored for the other half of the wing.

CSS Hunley
I would not put too much faith in the factual accuracy of this synopsis, as the author claims that the Hundley (sic) was found with the Housatonic after the war, with all of the crew dead within.

Tissue for frog bird dog
I created these printed tissue files for the Frog Bird Dog some years ago and sent them to the Frog models website but they never appeared there ? Anyway since the plan has been posted here seems fitting to post the tissue files here as well.
The PDFs show streaks but they print just fine, software glitch ?

My second build.
I have downloaded these plans of the Praticos and imported them into a cad program in PDF format. After tracing all relevant lines I printed the frames and glued them onto plywood with wallpaper glue. Then I followed the lines with my upside down jigsaw and cut them out. Then it was time to assemble the frames on the keel. For planking I used 20mm wide strips of mahogany veneer I found in my workshop. This is most authentic but the finish wasn't all that great and smooth. Possibly because the veneer was a bit to thin at 1mm. The electric motor I used looked huge but was just right after I adjusted the ballast. It seemed a bit top heavy to start of with and nearly keeled over in tight turns. The ballast adjustment fixed this and now it is sitting in the water just right. I had great pleasure building this model.
Thanks for providing the lines.
