Vertical stab pinned down.
Vertical Stab sanded, rudder pinned down.
Both are now complete except for hinges. The plan recommends tape hinges but are these compatible with nitro fuel? I was leaning towards CA hinges but perhaps covering hinges will be best in this application.
Horizontal stab construction begins. It didn't take long to realize that a ton of sanding would be required as this thing has curves in every direction.
It's starting to look like something here. I used a razor plane to taper the spar from the center to the ends.
After some intense sanding I have this.
This picture really shows the curvature. The stab was light before I started sanding. Now it is really light. :-)
Here's what I have so far.
