C17 Globemaster III build - elevated horns

I have had delivery of a few extra bits and pieces recently, so I've moved on with the elevator horns.  These are cut from 3mm Tufnol plate, then epoxied in place through to the next skin with plenty of fillet all the way round :

 Some M3 hardware attached to the ball link, which also has an M3 threaded hole.  Nice short pushrods will be used here, see one of the digital HV metal geared servos in place below :

And lastly my 3D printed flap hinge blocks.  These will be mounted in the wing flap canoes, then the ball links will be glued into the flap canoe itself with a short run of M3 studding up it's chuff to secure it :
