Cover Elevator

Still improving slightly. This was essentially the same as covering two rudders simultaneously. I used four pieces of fabric (with a seam in the middle around the control horn) instead of two. I'm trying to avoid creating too much waste until I'm confident I have enough fabric to finish the plane. Also, I forgot to install nut plates for the hinges, so I had to add some inspection rings. I should just be able to get my hands in there now!

Total Time: 29.75 hrs.
