C17 Progress - all 4 flap canoes

I placed an order with Blackburn Models earlier this week, and the parts came today.  One of the main things I needed was the XL Robart pin hinges, as I was one short to finish my flap canoe test.

A quick squirt of the hot glue gun, and it's mounted.  All 4 hinges now on the right line, doing what I want :



Lots of flap deflection here!  This means that this first wing can have its canoes clad in foam, then bonded on, then it's one step closer to being covered.  Very happy!
