Wing - Right Flaps and ailerons
Finished assembling the right aileron.
|Nose skin deburred and dimpled.|
|Remember to rivet the nose ribs to the lead pipe (AKA counterweight).|
|Bigger picture of inside done.|
|Ready for the pop rivets on the bottom.|
|I ran a countersink over the holes for the pop rivets, since they tend to sit up just a little.|
Oops, I free-handed the countersink on the counterweight rivets, and this one got away from me.
|When I was all done, there was a bit of a bend to the aileron.|
|Looks like a good eighth-of-an-inch (actually, not so good).|
|So, I just bent the aileron at the stiffeners a little. Looks good to me.|
|Not going to get any closer.|
|I assembled the aileron in two hours, then I spent another hour installing the stupid brackets. There is no way to get a socket on these two nuts, and don't even think about the bolt, that's close to impossible. Looks like I will need to buy a thin-walled socket to get this right.|
