New Fin Ribs, Leading Edge

And here are the new fin ribs ...

... being glued in place along with the new leading edge.

You know, I made these ribs the same way as before, starting with the plywood webbing
and then adding the cap strips afterward. However, I don't remember having so much trouble getting the cap strips to bend at the leading edge last time. I probably should have soaked them in water first, bent them around a form, let them dry, and then glued them to the plywood webbing.

Total Time: 10.5 hrs.
