Stabilizer work

Made the second bracket today. Both were fitted, brazed, cleaned up and primed.















Also, flipped the stabilizer over and made/glued the bottom plywood pieces. This is where the fin attach bolts go through. They will be drilled eventually when the fin is built. Don't worry...it will all make sense...eventually.....!















Here are a few more gussets. This piece attaches to the top and bottom of the spar. A plate will be made for the top and bolts will go through to hold the lower stabilizer strut. The other two are reenforcements for the tail wires and hinge points.
