I found a crossection of a B-17 wing and need a little help on how to make the ribs. Is it better to try to score styrene or should I try clay? I am using .01 steel rod for the supports and have no problem cutting it to length. I plan on only making two ribs. Just don't want to ruin my campaign build by chopping off half the wing and not be able to add the infrastructure.
Thanks in advance.
