Brief Description:  Assembling Horizontal Stab

It has been a long time since I had been able to work on my Panther.
The frame was assembled a couple of months ago and I decided it
was time to get back at it.
The first step in match drilling the skin to the ribs is to use rachet straps
and wood blocks to bring the trqailing edge of the skin to match that
of the aft spar. Be careful not to over tighten. It takes a bit of care
to be sure the holes in the skin are centered on the rib centerlines.
It is possible to reach under the frame to move the forward ribs if
needed as the bottom skin is not clecoed yet.
My advice: Follow the instructions in the manual and plans and it
becomes very easy...just takes a bit of time.
