What is proper way to build wing for Dyna-Moe with 1/32 sheeting on top of ribs or cut ribs so sheeting is flush? Hope someone understands question I have. Ribs appear to be same, as Gollywock/Jabbewock just don’t know about sheeting.

You should let the ribs in 1/32 so that sheeting is flush with the rib tops. You don't want a gap or step that you have to cover over. It distorts the airfoil shape and looks ugly. It would still fly fine but not best practice.

I agree.  It is not specified or shown on the plan, but that is best practice.

Short kit or full kit with ready cut ribs being produced?

There is a good chance that Retro RC might have something.  They are doing the Jabberwock and Gollywock - and took over Campbell's Custom Kits (who did a short kit of the Dyan-Moe).

Check with them:  http://retrorc.us.com/

The DynaMo is capable of staggering performance. In the mid 90s, my OFB, David Mills, wrecked his Moffett prior to the contest. He dragged out his fine flying DynaMo, and came in 2nd behind  Bob Bienenstein.

If you have never seen Moffett, or flown it, you might not understand how hard it is to come in second. 

David reports he was the crowd favorite-they were all cheering for an upstart victory, but upstarts did not have an easy path against Bob Bienstein.

Boy, that's for sure.  Bob has started flying at our monthly indoor contests up here in Michigan.  I am collecting more 2nd places since he started joining us (and fewer 1sts)!

Of course, it is an honor to fly with Bob, who has been flying at the championship level since the late 40s.

This might be too late but the short kit being sold through the NFFS has ribs that are cut down to compensate for sheeting thickness, as is shown on the rib side view on the plans.

Wally Simmers liked the Dyna Moe the best of all the designs he created. I think I heard that from George Perryman or maybe Lee Campbell.

I witnessed the Moffett flyers in the sod farm near Atlanta back several years. That was really an amazing introduction especially since they were using limited winds on the test flights. Yes, Bill Brown and Sandy Downs were flying these.
