Brief Description:  Rudder

I drew out the vertical stabilizer and rudder to full scale on the workbench before deciding to change the square tips to rounded. More like a cub.
Bent a piece of plywood between some nails on the bench and drew some aesthetically pleasing curves.
Created a bending block using the base of a rubbish bin as an outline on some scrap pine. Naturally made the radius smaller than the desired finished result to allow for spring back when bending the 3/8" x 0.035" 6061-T6 tubing. Held in at the top between the template and the workbench straight edge, the tubing bent really well to shape. Moved the template to the left to finish off the bend. Very happy with the result.
