VS tip and Top of rudder tip full size
Started trimming the tips for the rudder and vertical stabilizer. Kind of fiddly work. Also it dust get's everywhere when trimming the fiberglass. White itchy powder on everything. Here is a shot of the trimmed tips on the top of the rudder. The VS tip needs to have a fiberglass bulkhead put into it.
Bottom of Rudder full size
Trimmed the bottom rudder tip. It has faint scored lines. After I highlighted them, I noticed that one side was offset down .3 inches. Thank god I noticed before using it to trim. You can see the old line in this picture. It is a lot lower then needed.
