15-05, nose ribs L wing

I did this page out of sequence in order to build the wing on saw horses instead of the table.

The ribs are clecoed in place, prior to riveting. I try to double check everything before committing to rivets and it paid off.  The inboard rib is flat out upside down (equivalently:  flanges inboard instead of outboard) in this picture!  Quick reversal, and all was well...

A nicer picture showing the lightening holes aligning well.

This is even cooler—the nose rib cutouts that will accept the upper skins are also as well aligned as anything I can photograph.  It helps me feel more confident that I’m going in the right direction.
