Tricky indeed, but the last rib can be masked with adhesive tape. If you
work with milliput, the "fairing" vcan be smoothed with a moist finger over
the wing chord.

Same happened to me with those Spad VII wing replacements. By the wy, I
received yesterday that Spad VII book from Poland!!!!!!!!!! What a thrill,
all those drawings and new pictures! I must read it thoroughly and it really
aches to stay here in the office while the book sits, unread, at home!
