There is a support rib (at the root end of the wing) for each flap. You start by Supergluing them in the right place (after spending quite a bit of time filing them to make them fit good).
Afterwards they must be reinforced with 25mm tape but before that the edges are given a radius with flock.
At the other end of the flaps I installed the inner of 2 ribs for the hinge pin. Quite an important pin this one as it supports the flap and also goes through into the Aileron and will support that at it's outboard end.
Again Superglue first and then Flock to radius. This weekend hopefully I will be able to tape these and add the hinge pin before putting on the final outboard rib.
I also rough cut the holes for the counterweights in the wings and tided one up, will tidy the others this weekend.
|Supergluing the flap support ribs - ruler is just to support until dry|
|Rib must be vertically in line with wing root edge|
|Flocked edges to make a nice radius for the tape.|
|Both ribs flocked ready for reinforcing with tape|
