With the wings all framed up, I could start working on the empannage (tail section).
I picked out all the spruce I would need to frame the empannage and then got busy shaping the leading edges, trailing edges, fitting hinges, etc.
The horizontal stabilizer took several weeks to complete… primarily because of the HOT weather, but also because I was taking my time to ensure that I was building it properly.
Next I built the elevators.
And then the Rudder and vertical stabilizer to round out the entire assembly.
Once I clear the tables off I’ll be able to get started on the fuselage.
