Senator Tailplane Completed!

I've now completed the tailplane to the Senator. It took longer to construct than I anticipated because I was rather fussy on cutting the curved tips and ribs exactly to shape. I think I'm happy with the final result, however, we will see how it works out once it is covered as I suspect it may warp if I am not careful with the shrinking of the tissue.  The 1/16" wing spars were fiddly to cut and I hope they are strong enough.

The wide-angle lens on the camera is distorting the image.
