I can't really add anything, if Doug say's so, I wouldn't argue.
And I don't think anything has happened to change things in the 
past 15 years. Certainly nobody would notice, except yourself.
You'd also need to do a better job of rescribing than Eduard which
is difficult, I'd suggest re-skinning, I wonder if it's worth it?
I'd get around the problem by avoiding S.504, and doing one of 
the uncertain ones, then nobody would know for sure either way, 
and neither would you, which is the most important thing.

According to Doug Carrick's notes in the DF, the very early SPAD XIII
wings had 
10 rib stations between the struts rather than the 8 on most aircraft.
mentions that S.504 has these.

Anyone know anymore? Has anything else been published in the intervening
years? Do we thing S.498 or S.505 would have these wings?

Am I being just TOO picky? Would anyone notice in 1/72? And do I REALLY
want to 
rescribe 160 rib locations?
