Tail is together at last

The rain stopped long enough today for me to get the tail pieces out into the fresh air and put them all together. Here's most of the family - son Nicholas was playing at a neighbor's house - but everyone else was there.

I just have a few little odds and ends to do yet, then the tail will be completed. I have to spray the new fin wires and make the rudder horns. Here's another shot.

Before all this happened, I finished the coppering on the rudder. Here's an example of the copper pieces that really strengthened the joints.

Also today, I acquired an original engine for my Bucker Jungmann, but that's another story for another day.

Next step is building the missing fuselage fittings and controls.
