Been spending time getting this tail section finished. It was a slog to get all the controls in place before covering the parts. I finished the covering tonight. The elevator is 3 feet long. Tomorrow I will sand it and bond the V center in place. I am not done yet. I have to make a Y connector for the elevator controls and the a bellcrank for the rudders too.

After that is all done I am thinking of bolting the whole assembly to a seat in the fuselage. I want it to have a dowel and 2 small nylon screws to remove the whole section. There is a saddle to be made similar to the wing saddle. It has a 3 fold purpose. I may be in a situation I need room in my truck. Maybe control maintainence. Another is to remove it to dry out the inside should it get soaked. It will allow better air circulation when I use a cool air blower. I'll post pics maybe tomorrow if I get it done. I may go flying in that spring heat wave coming this way.
