My bad, after a quick review of the photo's there is a striking lack of wood grain on those hinges...

Keep up the good work, I dare say the end is getting close...

Ailerons almost done...

After some head-scratching and a few brain-storming sessions (while I was meant to be asleep) the aileron servos were mounted on 1/16 ply doublers and glued to an adjacent rib. The socket head screws can still be accessed via the lower cover panel or through from the root rib. (I hope)
Although the real machine has a pull/pull cable system (this was a 1930's design) I opted for a simpler pushrod to the lower horn and will fit a dummy connection on top. By taking the pushrod inside the wing and hiding the servo horn, it looks a bit more acceptable
The plan asks for +/- 12mm travel - I've got about 15mm each way - not a lot for small ailerons but gentle turns are all that is expected.
Detail bit such as balance weight on horns etc will be added later. The horns themselves are two layers of 1/32 birch 3-ply with CA reinforcing around holes.
Nice sunny 30 deg C day so a picture of Annie perched outside in the grass
