Fly In and Elevator Start

With an airplane booked, and now a free day to fly, we decided to make a quick flight to a nearby EAA Fly In. It was inspiring to see some RVs and meet the guys that built them. I posted some pics. (No that is not the same model that I am building)

After the fly in, I put a few productive hours into the elevators. The parts seem to go together easily with the trickiest part beings the counterweight ribs. They aren't straight, but with some fluting they eventually line up. There is also a bend in the skin that requires cautious work to be sure it's correct on the first try. (3.75)
