    I thought it had to be flush all the way around...but then it's welding, so you can fill in the "smile" of the end there. Or not. It is steel, after all, and it's not that's going to be taking a lot of stress.

    Winter don't skeer me. My mom knitted me a beautiful tricolor scarf to wear while flying! In fact, I like it when it gets (Alabama) cold. The air is a lot smoother. Of course I'm a nut and went flying a couple winters ago when it was 12 degrees! It's all just mittens and bundling up. Of course one can't have any exposed skin, but other than that it's all good.

    Fokker Builder, you'll need a flying helmet for your first flight. I'll lend you one of mine...

    I made this and a two handed sword one week in the old bike shop when I had nothing to do. Will this work? I also have a fibreglass German military style helmet with an 8ball and a bunch of save the bimbos type stickers too.

    Frank,

    You are correct, the end of that stab does get closed up. Thanks

    Horizontal stab
    The stab is out of the fixture. Have some more welding to finish this weekend but should be complete by Sunday. Will attempt to weight it as well.

    I tend to forget just how big a darned DVII is, but that stab sure brought it home.
