Default F4u Corsair aileron airfoil/profile

Hi all. On my TF Giant Corsair I'm adding scale hinges. As the hinge pivot point thus will be low and back from the aileron leading edge I will need to sand the LE to the right shape for it to move at all. I would like to compare with scale profile before committing. Can anyone help me with pictures showing the aileron airfoil? Thx

According to Paul Matt's drawing, the outer panel airfoil at the root is the 23015 and the at the tip 23000. I don't know if that is what you are looking for. Dan.

Found this that seems to be very near the profile I planned to make.

Taken from the Brian Taylor 1/6 scale Corsair plan and about as accurate as you are going to find I would suspect.
