For the sake of simplicity, the ailerons are top hinged, and built flat to the board...

Chris, If you can walk through the setting up of the wing incidence root rib , Id be very grateful.

I can see reference points off the plan to use but you may well approach this with more finesse.

Obviously, setting the wings to the fuselage is quite important. I usually set one wing relative to the tailplane with the help of the incidence meter. Once satisfied with this, I prefer to set up the second wing with the Mk1 eyeball, as I find this to be more reliable than the meter. This is done by lifting the rear of the fuselage up until you can sight along the first wing so the under surface forms a straight line. Moving your head, look at the other wing and check that it looks exactly the same: if it does, then the wings are properly aligned with each other relative to their respective angle of attack...
