aileron/elevator hinges


Recommended Posts

Evening All

 

I am at the stage in my DH 1A strip down build where I am having to think about attaching the elevators and ailerons to the rigid flying surfaces. I have searched in vain for any photographs or drawings of what these hinges looked like on real aircraft. Does anyone have a photo or drawing to show how the hinges were attached?

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

Thank you in advance.

This pic or this one from the Vintage Aviator BE2f restoration page may help. (Go to page 2, 2nd down in the middle!)

Many thanks Ian, that is very helpful. I am a little surprised how simple the hing is - somehow I had expected it to be larger or slightly more complex.
