Brief Description:  Left wing leading edge rib bracing

The drawings are unclear about what to do to keep the leading edge ribs in place whilst marking and drilling the leading edge skins.
In the past, these ribs were held by longerons, top & bottom, but theses had now been removed for som reason.
I decided to run a 12 mm X 12 mm X 1/16 angle along the leading edge tip secured to the ribs with small pieces of angle riveted to the ribs, however this alone would not prevent the ribs from wobbling from side to side, so I also made a gusset bracket between the front face of the front spar and rib number 4 in from the outboard wingtip.

Also decided where to locate the landing lights on each wing, between the 4th & 5th ribs out from the wing root.
