Rib "Cheek Blocks", New Jury Strut Brackets, Foam Wing Tips

Since my plywood is only 4 feet wide, I made these "cheek blocks"
to give the plywood a little more surface area to hold onto at the edges.

After attaching the spar packing, I noticed that the Jury Strut brackets didn't hang down
far enough below the spar, so I had to make new ones. Not sure what happened there!

I also decided to try something a little different for the wing tips. I'm going to try
shaping them out of polyurethane foam, and then covering them with fiberglass.

Total Time: 6.0 hrs.
