I've finished float sanding the elevator for now. The leading edge is all fixed now and I was much more careful and gentle float sanding it this time. You have to make sure to realize that the section tapers from station 1 to station 6 on those leading edge ribs. Station 0 does not follow the same taper. I almost learned that the hard way. I'm happy with the elevator now so I'll move on to some skinning stuff now. Exciting! I started soaking the elevator leading edge skin in the bathtub to get it good and ready to pre-bend to take that curve.
