Horizontal Stabilizer; Front Spar

I only got about 1/2 hour in the shop today. Enough time to decide that I need to buy a bandsaw. I used the vixen file to shape one of 8 sides for the fuse attach points of the Horizontal Stabilizer. Definitely need a bandsaw to make this go faster. If I am going to get one need it now, vs. waiting then deciding later after much manual work has gone by. ;-)

Also, drilled out the initial holes in the Front Spar and will be working on the trimming and bending of it next chance I get. You don't match drill the holes in the ears that bend later. They wait to get drilled once the bend is in place. Also, of the holes I did drill, some of them get enlarged and don't get rivets installed yet, but will wait until attached to the fuselage.
