Ailerons take shape

The past couple of work sessions have been focused on the ailerons.  They are slightly challenging because the forward skin places significant stress on the rest of the assembly due to its half formed shape and the fact that is is thicker than the rest of the skin.  Mariah had to help me cleco the forward skin to the spar and then the plans call for a lot of weight to hold things still while match drilling.  Here is a picture of the finished product.
