I decided to finally cut apart the tail ribs, but before I did that, I took a picture of all the wood tail pieces all laid out. Kind of the "before" part of the "before and after" pictures. Although, I think the forward stabilizer spar isn't in there.

I'm trying to be really careful getting the ribs cutout perpendicular to the centerline and I'm adding the rib measurements to help me when I'm sanding the thing. I don't really know if putting those measurements on there will actually help me or not but I thought I'd give it a shot. I still have the other side tail wing ribs and the fin/rudder ribs to split up. I also cut out more elevator leading edge ribs for the capstrip and started on the rudder leading edge rib cutouts.
