Good size honey do list today son only did a couple more things today. Put in the pieces and made the holes to attach the tail skid. Added the blocking to accept the hingepoints for the elevator. Hope to install the hinge points and mound the horiz stab tomorrow. At that point I should be able to start the pull pull setups for elev and rudder.

The top right is the tailskid doubler from the kit. I made it bigger. The hole for the wire skid and screws for the clamp didnt leave much room based on the originals size
Gluing the doubler and the main ply support in place
Gluing in the balsa for the rear space
The tailskid placed for trial fit.. I made a U channel in the support so the wire would lay in there a bit.
Stab and elevator with add'l bocking for hinge points. Plans how two CA hinges but I may add 1 more each side.l
