Wing - Right Flaps and ailerons
Preparation continues. I swear, I am going to prime these parts this weekend!
|Oops! This is one of the A-408 aileron spar reinforcement brackets. Notice how close to the edge the holes are on the left. The bracket needed to be turned 90°.|
|Fortunately, those parts were made from scrap. After I made these parts I found the actual pieces in bag 419. Looks like I am going to need the real parts.|
|Drilling the lead pipe. The holes start small (#40), and get bigger (#30).|
|I really like this paint remover wheel from WalMartz. The left side of the pipe has been roughed-up, the right side shows the corrosion. Hopefully, the primer will stick a little better this time.|
