I finished my flaperons tonight.  I was not looking forward to these, but found them very easy to scratch build.  First one took the longest and it got faster after that.  I logged 6.5 hours from cutting the skin out to having the part finished.

Now its on to the spars...... hoping I only have to build 2.
