First aileron fitted – Port Lower

At last …. finally got first aileron fitted today … plucked up the courage to align and mark up hinge fittings then drill through, countersink and duralac through wood. Washers were shaped to fit in parts to provide beefed up face for wood face.

Then put in place and temp fit end bolts … should give even top gap of 4mm min ….to allow for tilt

The concave wing ply web comes up nicely when the 1.5″ plastic drain pipe and clamps have been removed then the excess trimmed off … feels like a real aeroplane now !
