All's covered but the wing. Elevator and rudder are hinged.
There's some fancy work on the h-stab involving some triangle stock, and the bending of some wire for the tail wheel, and some drillin' and groovin' of the rudder for the tail wheel wire. I suppose rudder/elevator servos and servo linkages come next.

bend up tailwheel wire, cut and drill a piece of 1/8 in ply for tailwheel wire thrust bearing. remember to slip on collar before making the last bend in the wire!
drill hole and cut groove in rudder hinge edge
tailwheel wire in place. wire wants to be flush with hinge edge.
triangle wedges to support h-stab in final assembly. take extra care in jigging these up precisely -- centered, parallel to fuselage length, at proper width.
cut away covering where h-stab will mount in fuselage
tail section nearly done (a bit of glue and epoxy will make it final)
