Building the Empennage

After opening kit 1 and getting the inventory out of the way, and the work bench built, the first thing to build was the Horizontal stabilizer. When cutting the tubing, for all the parts that had mirror images, I cut both at the same time to insure that they were the same dimensions. The first of the two parts went together a bit slow, but the second part would go in a hurry, and with the cutting done to the same measurements it helped with the uniformity.

The vertical stabilizer and rudder were the next set produced. Notice the epoxy primer on the steel parts.
