Parts of the Speeder Sweep

If we carefully examine the speeder sweep, we can see that it is comprised of a series of distinct pieces and shapes. 

The sweep is built on a base that is 1/2" thick.  To stiffen the base we have two L-shaped ribs.  To fasten the sweep to the speeder, we have a 3/4" plate with a hole.   The wing is another 1/2" thick piece with two slots in it.  It is mounted on the base via a pedestal that is 20 degrees to the base.  So our task will be to fabricate all of these bits and pieces, glue and nail them together.
