Flaps and ailerons.

Two flaps and an aileron....what to do?   I know, another aileron!
Ready to complete the left aileron.

That piece of stainless steel pipe in the leading edge of the aileron is the counterbalance.
Rob the riveter.

Taught my big brother, Clarke how to back rivet.  (stiffeners to the aileron skins)
Rob and myself making aileron hinges.

Marking the aileron stiffeners before cutting.

Both flaps complete!

Prime time for aileron parts.

Left flap all done.  The tape was to hold the trailing edge rivets in place during the back riveting process.
