Not liking wing the joiners on my Custom Mirage build.....any tips

I'm in the process of building a Mirage and making it a 5 panel wing per my build log below.

I'm not likeing or having fun with the wing joiners. I had to make new joiners, out of 1/8" ply because the Polyhedral angle is different from the 3 panel stock Mirage wing.

I've made a couple sets,but I'm still not happy the way they fit. The outer tip panel on the left wing fits tight,but is a little sloppy when it plugs into the center panel. And vise versa on the other wing. I also have a little bit of twist on one of the wings to get it to lign up.

Anyone have any good tips on how to make the joiners fit better? Or is it just trial and error untill I get what I want.

The slot on the ribs where the wing joiner is inserted is a little bit larger than the joiner itself. Which is part of the problem. Any Ideas how to make them fit better?

I'm probably just too picky and they are ok the way they are. I just want to make them better.

Thanks for any tips.

Eddie
