Prepared Trailing Edges

The plans suggest that it would be easier to pre-assemble the
trailing edge pieces for the aileron pocket, so that's what I did.

Update: The strip on the left is for the top, the one on the right is for the bottom.
After struggling with trying to bend the plywood that mates with the top piece,
I decided it would be easier to make the top piece the same as the bottom piece.
(Note the doubled-up plywood underneath the triangle stock of the bottom piece.)

Update: Although I ended up doubling the plywood on the top piece, the designer
indicated that doubling up the plywood on the top piece is not necessary.

Total Time: 8.5 hrs.
