Prebending the Leading Edge Plywood

Posted on Updated on

Prebending the leading edge plywood is a bit more difficult than the aileron. I started by cutting some plywood scrap into the leading edge contour.

The profile is a tad bit longer than the nose ribs since the plywood is also longer.

Once the first one was completed I used it as a template to make more with the flush cut router bit. Once completed I connected then with dowels and inserted the plywood I had soaking in water.

The profile looks great, should make the leading edge easier to complete.
