Have all the pieces cut out to assemble the stabilizer and have them nicely arranged for the picture.

As I did on the wing the leading and trailing edges are notched to accept the ribs. I decided to build the elevator width at 2 3/4" and have cut the necessary amounts off the ribs.
I will be building the elevator in two pieces with a wire joiner.
As you can see in the picture the three center ribs are first glued in place along with the wire joiner and sleeve.
The only other item to mention is the maple key I added for strength between the balsa leading edges where they will be joined together.
