Great post! Most wing failures I have seen did not happen at dead center but usually just outside the fuselage. For that reason I always apply the cloth to extend at least one fuselage width past the fuselage. My last two designs have rather thin wings so a vertical wing joiner of Divinicell with 3.6oz bagged front and back. The joiner is flush to the exterior of the wing skins so that when the center section is glassed the glass has a connection to the joiner. Very light and strong.
