Wing strut supports

The wing struts (now in position) have rear mounted support brackets that brace against the short rear spar that the aileron bellcrank is mounted on.

The doubler plates need to be cut down slightly so they don’t protrude beyond the centreline of the vertical strut, then curved to take the shape of the strut then finally hammered over the edge to curve it slightly to follow the contour smoothly

Then the triangular support plate is prepared and smoothed before being offered up and cleco’d

Note the bracket requires a small bend inwards to pickup the support bracing bar (see above)
