    Hi, I need to add some more ribs to the plans im going to use for my USS Fletcher build. The plan only has 9 "ribs" really just cross sections, but i need for like 12 or 13. Is there any good way to add ribs? Id like to keep with proper geometry and not just duplicate ribs, Much appreciated! Thanks.

    Bro, you might want to try to consolidate your fletcher related questions, at least at the start. So what's the deal? Are you trying to get on the water, or are you one of the weirdos like me, who gets a bigger kick out of hand-building everything they can?

    If you're trying to get on the water, definitely go vac-u-boat. check out my post on your other thread. If you're a whacko like me, then you probably need to have a chat with @McSpuds and check out the Bearn build that's tacked to the top of the warship builds page.

    I won't pollute your mind with what I *think* is the right way to do it. Spuds and the guys like him are wizards with stuff like that.

    The link I shared on one of your threads had plans with plenty of ribs.

    Julian Barbera I have a delfit ship I designed of a Fletcher destroyer with a rib every inch if you want a copy. If you have a projector just aim it at the wall with the right distence to have the right scale size, Mark out the ribs you want.

    Thanks, but I have decided to buy a ship for my first. But I may PM you in a year or so if I still want a fletcher.
