        Update time, So now I have made a pair of bridal position tow releases for either side of the cockpit, I have the rudder internals built and the fin is skinned in .8mm ply, the wing cores are now cut also so now I can arrange my wing attachments before ply covering the fuselage

                Tail end progress, today the leading edge and top of the fin bave been trimmed and sanded closer to their final shape and the tailplane is now all glued up as a frame work ready for the skin, ive put hard points into tbe mounting area, tbe front has a 20x10mm channel in tbe box and the rear mount is filled with laminted spruce as its a bit thinner.
                Before i stopped for the afternoon i started setting up the .8 ply skins for the stab because tbe tail is longer tban tbe 4' sheets I trimmed tbe sheet to fit tbe second to last rib each side making the joins in tbe ply out near the end in the lower load area and also making the joins the same on each side and by cutting tbe cut off piece in half i can do the complete top side with minimal waste

                        You gonna put the smoke generators on it? That color scheme is really pretty!

                            I think I have just about sorted the elevator horns, the real Lo has service hatches either side that line up with the elevator linkage im.wondering if ill be able to use them to help me with field assembly and connection of the pushed to horn,? Thinking perhaps a bolt face out towards the hole from the horn tbat i could put the end of the pushed over then retain with nylock nut?/r clip? or please help with ideas ?

                              Maybe a 'pin and fork' method like as used on Art's (ingrahal) Cherokee?
