Elevator metal construction

Began working on the metal tabs on the first elevator. This one is at the main spar. The trailing edge will be cut flush later.

Here's a tab after brazing. It's .035 sheet steel bent over a piece of trailing edge.

Another brazed tab.

Here you can see the tabs on the elevator. I have a few more to build tomorow. Middle son Nicholas is supervising.
