How to make a customized aileron

Description  

On many occasions when we decide to build a customized vehicle, we realized that we did not have all the necessary parts.

After some time trying to gather that material for the project, the imagination and talent help us to create the things we really need, and this is why Iíll let you know this technique that without any doubt will be of great help.

Materials needed for this aileron:

Plasticard sheets ( I used Evergreen ones cause this material is malleable and can be shaped under heat without problem)
Glue
Metal rod
Putty
Sand


To start with this task, I took a piece of plasticard cut to size, this piece will be the base; then another piece was cut with the necessary width but a little shorter and was glued as can be appreciated in the image.

You may give the wished aileron shape with the help of a hair-dryer, getting in this way another profile.
As shown in the picture, once this step was finished a metal rod was added on the top for strengthen and to maintain the shape.
Next, the part was puttied and sanded to shape.
If youíve followed all these steps, youíll get this result:
Then, you can also customize the rear aileron by painting it or adding decals.
