I did some quality control on the fin ribs today. Centerlines drawn, dimensions checked. They are all done except for a couple that I still need to add some trailing edge strips to. Here's the stack of fin and rudder ribs mostly done and checked over.

Next I'll be working on the spars for the tail. Some of the spars are simple structures with some beams glued together with spacers or cross pieces, probably easier than the ribs. Some of them are laminated and tapered in two directions. Not easy. The non-tapered ones will be first so I can think about the tapered kind a little more first. I have some good ideas that some other builders told me about that I will most likely use.
