Ailerons and wing are slotted for hinges. I used the Great Planes Slot Machine I got for Christmas. This is my first use and I'm really pleased with it.

I trimmed too much off one side of the center trailing section, so glued on a thin piece to close the gap. Once covered it won't show.

Ailerons are beveled. I used a small balsa plane rather than sanding.

Wingtips are carved to shape. This job really calls for a balsa plane. It's much less messy to plane rather than sand.
