I am planning a Japanese bomber and would like to replicate the stringers and ribs ....does anyone have any suggestions as to how to best do this? I have seen .030 evergreen strip used and it looks good,but I think its a little heavy for 1:72 scale ...any suggestions?

I would say the same Jim 0,30 does seem a bit to heavy for 1/72 scale . 0.20 or 0.15 would be your best bet to go on that . It will have the more scale feel to it . I would get this in sheet froum so you can cut it to the width you need . hope this helps you out Jim .
