First bits assembled

Started assembling the elevator today.
Below: the first joint of the bigger 1″ tube and the curved 3/4″ tube.
Right: the stabilizer, the fixed part of the elevator.

Below: in the center of the stabilizer two 7/8″ sleeves. One inside the 1″ tube, and one over the two halves made of curved 3/4″. This reinforcing is there so bolting onto the fuselage is more rigid.

And started coping the tubes that go in the elevator. I am using a drill press with a vice bolted onto it. Seems to go OK !!
