Finish right aileron [4.5 hours]

After a break from building, I got back to work today and finished the right aileron. Riveted the bottom skin to the main spar, the trailing edge, and CS4-4 rivets on each side. Used the same method (construction tape) as before, with the same result – dead straight trailing edge. I’ve shown a few different views to complement the previous descriptions of this technique.
