That's the story, Wayne. Rough cut oversize and sand it with a long bar. Then ply the tip bays.

I notice that you did not cut a 45 deg angle on the bottom spars, they seem to be cut flush with the end rib. A 45 deg angle on the bottom spars would give more support to the tip but you can cut some 45 deg triangles from 3/8 balsa and stick them to the ends of the bottom spars to do the same job.

yeah its a headache for sure plus i cut my fingers on the bandsaw same time so i took the easy route and sanded them flush and adding triangle 90/ 45 degree balsa to the space later then sand :-)
