The port aileron hung by the hinge-pins to check its balance after sanding off most of the paint and filler on the undersurface. I've drawn a line on the root to mark as well as I can the centreline between the upper & lower surfaces, which needs to be horizontal for proper balance.

The port aileron hung by the hinge-pins to check its balance after sanding off most of the paint and filler on the undersurface. I've added a lead weight aft of the hinge line to bring the line drawn on the root horizontal - the condition of proper balance.
