Mountain Models MiniFlash Build Question

I am in the process of building the wing for the Miniflash. The instructions state: "Position the 3/32" balsa rib reinforcement into place and glue."

I believe this reinforcement is glued to the inside rib but I am not completely sure.

I would appeciate your feedback.

Thanks

The 3/32" piece is glued to the inside of the inner most rib. By inside, I mean the side towards the other ribs. The inner most rib will be pulled in when you shrink the covering so this piece gives the rib strength. The outermost rib does not need this because of the wingtip.
