Fit Ribs to Right Wing

I started assembling the right wing. I'm probably not going to post as many updates
on this wing as I did with the last one, since the steps are obviously going to be the same.
However, I did notice that for some reason, these ribs required much less filing
to get them to slide onto the spars this time, and there are not even any gaps!
This is how the first wing was supposed to turn out!

With experience naturally comes confidence, but unfortunately, I think I have
too much right now. I noticed that I wasn't taking as much time as I should have
when drilling the holes in the spars, and I had to repair 5 of them!

Total Time: 10.5 hrs.
