Aileron Pocket Details

I didn't notice anywhere on the plans how the aileron pocket trailing edges were supposed
to be terminated, so here's what I did. I lined the outside of the aileron pocket ribs
with 1.5mm plywood, and then cut and glued 1/4 inch plywood blocks in the shape of
the end of an aileron rib. The trailing edges of the aileron pocket will be glued
to these blocks, allowing the entire aileron pocket to be sealed.

Total Time: 3.0 hrs.
