Elevators (mostly) complete, Trim Tabs

We finished the elevators.  Trailing edges look beautiful, and overall I’m pretty happy with the elevators.

I’m a lot less happy with the trim tabs.  Bending the close-out tabs on the elevators was cake, but doing the same for the trim tabs is miserable.  I’m tempted to order more skins and do it again, but I think they’re probably good enough.  I didn’t have double-sided tape. In retrospect, I should have waited until I acquired some.

Part of my problem is that I was lulled into a false sense of security because the elevator close out tabs went so well.
