Today was nice enough to glue so I got to it with the first station 3 rib. Originally, I wasn't sure what thickness the plywood web for the section directly behind the forward wing spar was. It looks like the plywood pad with the holes through it is called out twice as 2 mm and the web isn't specified. A quick email to Alfred and he confirmed it was 2 mm. Good to be sure
For this rib, the method I used to glue on all the gussets and web was to just glue on all the gussets with staples and use weight for the plywood web near the leading edge. Since the other station 3 rib is opposite of this one with regard to the plywood web, I may just staple both sides including the plywood web.
