Started to first portion of the build. Over the last few days I have located all the pieces that will make up the vertical stabilizer. Got them all deburred, match drilled, primed and riveted together.
Only change from plans on this piece is that I added a delrin rudder stop that I purchases from Flyboy. Not only is this piece bigger and probably stronger than the stock versions, but it is bolted to the hinge instead of riveted. There have been cases where the rivets have broke when left in the wind with no gust locks.
