Rudder Cap Removed

Only had a few minutes to work tonight so i cut the Balsa cap off the rudder. Came off very easy. The cap was 3/8" Balsa, I'm going to run to the hobby shop tomorrow and get a replacement block. Shouldn't take too much work to get that area cleaned up and ready to glue a new piece of wood to, then sand the balsa block into a nice finished shape.

Supplies from Stewarts shipped today. I took the uncovered rudder out to Harry's and he examined it. It passed inspection, he was impressed, which was good. As he said, hopefully the rest of the glider is in that good of shape.

Moved the fuselage into town after work today. Unfortunately ran out of time before I could start tearing fabric off it. Tomorrow.
