Default gusset grain detail and cutting the rib blanks

Note the grain when cutting the gussets. The apex angle is not quite 90* and the gusset was sanded to fit.

Ribs -
The leading edge and trailing edges of the wing were clamped, and the rib blanks custom cut and sanded to fit.

Need to buy some original Titebond wood glue. I read that it sanded better than the Titebond II wood glue....don't want to use CA, just personal preference.

I'll use some weights on top when gluing.

I need to remember to weigh the wing panel before and after gluing.

edit - I used Titebond II (which is water resistent - the balsa fails first) and Titebond II sands great.
