Just want to check this one, where a plan specifies dihedral, you would presumably measure this from the chord line if not specified?

Below is the Chilli Wind plan I am working from, it does say "under" each wingtip so perhaps the intention is to put a 1" block under each tip when joining at the point shown on plan? I need to commit to an approach before I cut foam cores!

Measure from the bottom of the thickest part of the tip rib to the desk. Also put one half of the wing on the desk and set the tip of the other wing to 2" from the desk, this will give you 1" under each tip.

Is it a Chilli Wind by any chance?

Ignore the Chilli Wind question, senior moment on my part
