Now for the wing:

I never realized when I was designing this plane, but it's huge! I guess you can't tell until you actually build it in real life. I really like having the ailerons as seperate pieces from the wings. It allows you to use better hinges and also looks a lot cleaner. THe little tabs sticking out the back gave me a lot of trouble. You have to bevel the entire thing, so It's tricky to do it without bending them and creasing the foamboard.
Some pics of the spot where the ailerons go:

I had to add some scrap foam to the back of the wing to keep it from bending and warping. Nice and easy, but it works a treat!
