It has been a trying and sometimes painful 14 months since I put the airplane project on hold. But, I’m finally working on the airplane again. I’d started on the horizontal stab front spar last week. The spar halves were the HS-602 parts that originally came with Kit#80566 (1998). They were not the pre-punched style. And, in trimming the flanges back the 4 7/16″ from centerline, I made a mistake by cutting through the relief notch on one side at the bend line. So, after a little research I saw that the newer HS-702 HS front spar halves are pre-punched and come with the flanges already trimmed back to the bend line. At $20 apiece, they are an easy replacement that come with a little time-saving feature- money well spent!
