Working on the elevator.

The plans show an interleaving tape (did I say that right?). However, I plan to use conventional hinges.

Edit: "interweaving". Some days I wake up dumber than usual.

Put water on 1/16" balsa, then used wrap on it to get the balsa to conform to a 4-1/2" dia. tube. This will give the balsa some 'curviness', to conform to the turtle deck.

The wrap start coming loose, so I put tape to help hold it.

Wondering if you are going to put the "Leno" chin on your North Africa Spit.
It's looking great BTW.

skaliwag is referring to an air filter that was added to North Africa Spitfires, causing the bottom of the cowl to stick out. (The "Leno" chin is a pretty good description.)

At this time, I am not planning on adding that detail. But it does bug me that I am not adding it.....
