    • Nice work Dave! I found building the fin to be very rewarding. Was one of the first steps that made the fuselage start to look like and airplane.

        • HI Guys, More progress to report today, finally got the horizontal stabs fitted and that pesky little tab the the elevator bearings attaches to welded in. I got the elevators installed as well. I have a full range of motion. As anyone who has installed these you know what a pain it is. Here are the pic.

            • Hi Guys made a little more progress today. I got the elevator trim system drilled and fastened together. I found that my elevators will only go up 23 degrees so I will need to cut the elevator bearing tab loose and move it up some. That is a tricky part to get right. Comment and suggestions are welcome,

                Usually the stop that limits travel is a piece of tube welded between the two upper longerons. Mark
