Build Diary 12-September-05

I have started to fit the empanage, so I can fit the elevators and rudder.

I had already drilled the front Vertical stabalizer to Horizontal stabalizer attachment/bracket. I had not already riveted it in place as I wanted to paint it first. There is a high chance that this area will get wet from water running off the VS. So I am taking care to ensure this is well primed and joint's sealed.
Rear VS bracket. Again I had already prepared and painted the part. I riveted and bolted this in place.

The VS & HS finishing cover. I am going to do the fitting work while this area is together.
It's going to take some work to get this fitting well.
