Left you see the front tube of the aileron, attached with hinges (see above).

The aileron tube, is a bit longer than the spar tubes, sticking into the fuselage, where a lever will be moving the aileron up and down.

At the wing tip, the curve will go “into” the aileron, but more on this once the ailerons are done…..

The front aileron tube is 1″ and the trailing tube is 1/2″, thats why is shaped this way…

Bending all but two of the aileron ribs. The last two will be a bit shorter, so will do that when the wing tip is done.
