Default RV-8 N657AR Updates

The first of many milestones: My horizontal stabilizer is essentially completed. The vertical stabilizer will be assembled in a few days. My thanks to Dan Jones for my first Tech Counselor visit that preceded the closing of this sub-assembly. I will note the milestones here; for more details, visit my build log at www.mykitlog.com/goatflieg

Awesome! It's great to hold a finished piece of airplane in your hands, huh?

Looks good.
Bet that shop isn't that clean in a year or two.

Surprised myself by reaching my second milestone in as many days: the vertical stabilizer is complete. An easy piece, as it were... but I did have to replace a couple sloppy AN470AD4 rivets. A little tricky, but caused no damage and the replacements set well. I deserve a break tomorrow. I'll probably feel a bit broken... but it's a good kind of pain.
