vertical fin and rudder

Added the reenforcing blocks today. Once the glue has had a day to cure, I will begin the sanding. This will transition the 1in trailing edge to the 9/16in leading edge. I'll get some before and after shots tomorow.

Here's the pattern for the front steel attach point. It's .125 in. stock. There will be two pieces - one straight and one bent. Both will be welded together.

Here's the fitting on the plans. Just so you can see where the pieces will eventually go.

While the fin was drying, I set up the forming blocks for the rudder. More on this later!

Taking the weekend off to go to the East Coast Bucker fly-in. See you when I return
