1936 HM-14 rudder rib details

In the 1936 edition of Le Sport de l'Air, Henri Mignet presented a refined version of the rudder in the 1934 version, but he omitted some details. For example, he did not provide the rudder rib lengths he had given in 1934, and he did not specify the different angles for the tail of each rib. I worked those out in CAD, and they are illustrated below.

I hope that saves someone an hour or so of CAD work!
