Help!
Sanding leading edge on a Lil Bird 2M

Hi guys! Wing is nearing completion. There's something I don't get in the building instructions: am I supposed to sand the leading edge until it's 1/8 thick when seen from the front - or from the top? I'd say from the front, but I wonder... See attached instructions.

Thanks for your help!

yup from the front. Airfoil is thinning out at the tips.
