Smooth Genie Cord Span
Can someone measure the Cord on the SGP for me? My plans show the ribs being an inch longer and the spar webs are all too tall for the thinkness of the ribs. So, now I'm wondering if I have LTS ribs by mistake.

Assuming it's the same as the composite wing, this has the panel measurements for all three Genie wings. 10" root for the SGP.

The height of each rib is different - therefore for the kit to have each individual rib web cap (40 rib webs just in center section) cut to the appropriate height - would raise the cost of kit A LOT!
Many modern kits just supply a sheet(s) of balsa/ply for you to cut the webs and web caps 0R the kits are in the $500+ price range.
They are cut to the correct width.....
PS: Follow the building log and the rib length will work itself out - also all plans when printed tend to shrink or expand - not always the same in both directions.
