The beginning of a static elevator made out of commercial aluminium. I made five of these ribs today, which is way quicker than I would take making airworthy ribs. This elevator will possibly go on my Boomerang or be swapped for other components. Working on this static elevator will also help me to develop tooling and techniques required on the airworthy elevators.

Fuselage to wing fairing from A46-147 Located behind exhaust on Stb side. The forward section of the panel is made out of stainless steel for heat resistance.

 Remains of the "No Step" stencils on the panel.
