So the rudder is done (less the fairings) and I am now working on the horizontal stabilizer.

Lots of details in the build blog if you are bored!

In progress on the HS. This thing is taking a while! Tonight I match reamed over 940ea #40 holes!

Had a few distractions over the past couple weeks that is also slowing me down.

Check out the HS progress in my build blog:

HS is done! (less fairings)

WHEW! that was as Jerry Clower would say: "A great big un!"

And I would say it was allot of work!

Lots of details in my build blog if you are interested: https://brantel-rv10.blogspot.com/

And here they are. All done with the exception of the fairings. These things were the most time consuming so far. Some real brain teasers and tight spaces to work in. New to me construction techniques and the fact that it has two trim tabs made these much more challenging than the RV-7 elevators. Glad to finally get them done and move on to the anticipated TAIL CONE!

So I managed to finish the tail feathers in a little under 200hrs. Not sure where that rates in the averages but I will take it.
