That's a nice jig. Almost as much in constructing that as in making the wing. :lol:

Lower channel filled with carbon (roving TX 2400).
That way, wing is very flexible and very strong.

Lower part covered and aligned with front edge.
Then I glued plate to the ribs and weighted everything down.

Edge is reinforced with carbon fibers, so it can be sanded to be very thin.
