In preparing the trailing edge elevator ribs, I needed to add some material to some of them to make them the correct height. I glued on a little strip and then shaped it to match the rib. Some needed an extra mm and some only 0.5 mm. It's good to leave a little material so you can tweak them while lining up all the ribs together and to making them stand up vertical. You also have to sand an angle at the trailing edge tip to match the taper from root to tip on each side. Extra material is always your friend.
