Lower Wing Aileron Coves

I’ve been working on the lower wing aileron coves. I decided to go with wood coves instead of aluminum. It’s been a lot of detail work sanding out the correct radius and getting the correct clearances that will allow for paint and covering. Here are a few pics. The first is the drawing for the aluminum coves. Main takeaway is the 2.38 radius and the 1.77 height of the top and bottom of the cove.
