Leading Edge hold down blocks

Today's Progress - with some .035 sheet, The curve was bent on a scrap piece of leading edge tubing.















Then, the piece was cut out to the dimentions shown in the Curtiss drawings. Notice the tabs that hold the wooden block in place.















Here's a trial fit. As all the other leading edge fittings, it will be brazed in place. The final drilling of the bolt holes will have to wait until the fuselage is built to ensure accuracy. U-bolts will go around the upper longeron through these blocks to hold the stabilizer in place.
