Hello bullit (I love this movie and the guy who played the role...!)
Yes! Eric is still in the business, but it's not with the Asso he earns his living.
I have spoken with him a few weeks ago and he is really busy with his main job.
He told me that he has not very much time for the forum.
I will give him a call or at least a message in order to relay your help request.
Don't worry! He's a honest guy and won't let you down.
It's just a matter of time and priorities in a tough period of time for him.
I'll let you know any news from him ;-)

Hi guys,
Unfortunately I don't know the NACA profile used by Vidor either, and I can't ask him anymore...
We should try to ask on an Italian forum... maybe someone who was close to Vidor could tell us...
For the modelling of the Asso X under 3D software, I have a friend who has already done the job under CATIA...
I can ask him the 3D projection of the ribs and main spar...
Also, I can provide the ribs under Autocad file (sheets A3, A4) and the profile (sheet A9) if you want.. Just send me an e-mail
Finaly, regarding the sheet A5 / F drawing, you are right, the view F is not shown on the drawing... It is missing..
I will ask to other home builder to try to understand this view and the cotation shown...

Hi Eric,

I have just sent you an e-mail.

It would be great if you could clarify with your friend the ribs alignment according to view F.

I hope to read from you again in the forum.

Hi Bullit

The wing airfoil used on the asso X seems to be clearly a Harry Riblett series (NACA airfoils modified). Also the extended platform at the wing root looks like Harry Riblett wing design. Harry Riblett airfoil series (GA airfoils) are used on many aircrafts as the SD-1 for example.

Hi Jeanroch,

many thanks for the info. I have been checking the GA airfoils and I found a match with the 35A212 :D
