C17 tail work

I have veneered the fin and tailplane now.  I am starting the marking up of elevators and servo positions, ready to start cutting through the skins.  You can see a standard size servo holder on the one half for scale...


And here is the fin-top - an all lite-ply structure that the tailplane halves will be mounted in.  This then bolts through onto the fin, and allows me to change the incidence angle if need be.


A few scribbles for the working out of positions of items always helps.
