Bending ribs

This weekend started working again on the elevator. bending 6 ribs from sheet aluminium. I am not using Robert’s supplied aluminium, they are to hard to bend. I am using 6061T6 from a local aviation store. No idea what to do with the original supplied ones, just impossible. My ribs work just fine.┬áThe elevator is made from 1″ and 1/2″ tube.

Almost finished the whole elevator. Need to “connect” the stabilizer and elevator, and then up to the next project, the fuselage !!!!

 

 

But first I need to make a few brackets on the wall to start hanging up the bits I have done so far.
