I worked on the trim tab today. I used some wedges to set the trim tab spar at an angle. These wedges are glued to the spars with regular Elmer's carpenters' glue. These get cut apart later after the elevator is skinned but for now they hold the angle. I put the hinge in there to make sure the spar was the right height for where the pin side of the hinge goes.
I used little 3 mm shims on each side of the trim tab spar to set the placement and leave room afterwards for cutting out the trim tab.
I fit all the ribs on there and snapped a picture, then ran out of time. I'll glue it up next time.
