Leading edge

The plans call for a 1/8x3/8" leading edge, but of course it needs to follow that wicked gull curve.  So instead of one piece, I decided to laminate 3 pieces of 1/8" sq. bass stock.  First I used the spars to cut a pattern in two slabs of foam board and used spray adhesive to stick them together.  I fastened them down to my drywall building board.  Then I steamed all 3 pieces for a short while - just enough to get them flexible.  I glued the edges, and pinned them against the foam board.  These should make for a nice leading edge.
