Look at this huge wing – this is my Horizontal Stab! :)

Horizontal stabilizer assembly takes way more time than all previous parts. It is not only because it is large part but also because it is more like a wing where assembly get more complicated due to quantity of parts and complexity or their attachment with each other. After building simple wooden jigs to hold the stabilizer in vertical position I started its assembly by clicoing all parts to skins from bottom to top. At some point I realized that I have not enough clicos thus I had to go one clico per 5-10 holes. I just ordered more clicos from spruce and waiting for these to arrive soon. This is needed for me to continue my build because the next step is a match drilling where I will need very tight attachment of all skins to all inner parts. My kids and wife were helping me during this assembly as well.
