Got started on the vertical stabilizer today!

First, you lay out the spar doubled in the channel

Drill Drill Drill...


So on and so forth.....

Then you build up the basic structure. These ribs took a bit of bending to get them straight.

All that bending for nothing. Once the skin goes on, it pulls everything into place quite nicely. These pre-punched kits are a wonderful.

I can't believe how far we got on this in one day. Major progress.
