Aileron bellcrank stiffener

This is a small rod that has a couple of brackets (one each end) made up of a top and bottom plate shaped to fit up to and around the aileron bellcrank support tube and then the but up against the drag brace.

As it was getting pretty late by the time I started these I thought I would just get the outline curves in the metal brackets to see how they would lie. They seemed to go reasonably well but the rivet size doesn’t match any of my cleco sizes which is a pain … so will think of a different interim securing method to allow mock up in situ before final etch priming and riveting.
