        Ha ha ha - The dust will definitely be flying when I get to sanding the fuse. Yow. I finished the sheathing last night and will try to rough sand it and the nose blocking outside this weekend with the full mask and all the gear. Next up is fitting the stab to the fuse and then faring them together. Thanks Al and Michael.

          Get this latex kind of Haz-Mat suit. You can inflate it with (1) extra air or (2) your own nitrogen + CO2 + CH4 + O2 + H2S + mercaptan source so that when it is opened the dust will get blown away! Just don't strike any matches if you use 'number 2'!

                Got the stabs female plug wired and Gooped in place the other night. After all that goes into planning, fitting, aligning, and then making these work, they sure don't look like much when completed. Ha. Its a good fit and very solid. Then with the stab attached to the fuse, I cut scrap foam to fit on either side of the plywood and hard balsa fuse keel to continue the fuse lines to the rudder. This step seemed a little daunting at first with the rudder pushrod on one side, the stab meeting the fuse, and the oddly shaped fuse keel. Once started the two pieces were done in no time and gluing in place. - David

                  Nice! Are you going to glass the fuse once completed?

                Yes, the plan is to glass the fuse Michael.
