    I've started working on the Ailerons - I need to layout the Ailerons in order to make sure the fit is correct with the Flaps/Dive Brakes and the center of the wing.

    I CNC'd the bottom of the Aileron - including marking the location of each rib.

    I also realized that I needed to add the wing tips to each wing panel in order to make sure that the Aileron is positioned correctly.

    The wing tips are made from 2 pieces of laminated balsa block. I CNC's the balsa block and glued the blocks together.

    I then glued the wing tips onto each wing panel.

    With the wing tips, in place - back to the Ailerons.

    Added the ribs (which are CNC'd from TBolt Composite Foam board) brass rod hinge point and CBA Strap Hinges

    Hinges were aligned with the plans and blocks were added to secure the hinges.

    This guy showed up - he'll be the pilot for the Helldiver. Unfortunately, he has assumed a "project manager" role for this build, and he has been constantly on my back to get this plane done since he arrived!

    I also ordered a Japanese Zero pilot for my Ziroli Zero (I'll be doing a finishing thread on that in the next couple of months). The Japanese pilot was here yesterday, but I seem to have misplaced him. When I find him, I will get a pic of him as well.
