Again a bit of thinking how and in what order to skin the Fins.
Sectional lead edges first to give the fins stability after removing the vertical building plate to sheet both sides of the main parts of the fins & rudders at the same time to maintain trueness.Plus lead for the Elevator servo.

Great Terry!
don't put anything to guide the servos lead after skining?...
i used to make some holes and put a lead from the servo bay to the RX place and after skinnig y change this lead with the lead for the servos...i am clear?
Go Terry! very good...!

Completed forming/skinning lead edge. Fins now rigid enough to cut away vertical building plate.
