Default RE: How do you sheet without gaps?

Sometimes, the center shearweb is pre-cut, and teh top spar is glued on top. The notches in the ribs are sanded to meet the shear web (or visa versa) so taht all are the same, and the top spar sits nicely on top of it all. That's how my 4* is done, and a few others as well (GP do it on a few of their kits)

You can also just cut slightly oversized, then sand each to fit, so each is a 'custom fit'

Glueing slabs on the front (or back) of the spars also work, just ensure you get the grain in the right direction (vertical)
