Rudder is done!

Made the last four brace wires today. Here you can see the horns put together prior to being dissasembled for painting the finish black color.

Here's a shot of the entire rudder.

And another one.

Next step is to build the fuselage table and inventory the fittings that need to be made. We're waiting for some of the missing fittings to come back from the lazer cutter any day. There were several universal fittings behind the rear seat that were missing and it was easier to have them cut rather than do them individually on the bandsaw and grinder. Might as well use the new technology, it's available!

Till then
