With the skins ready it is time to do another trial fit. And this is where I discovered a booboo.. The bolt that locks the elevator pushrod in place interferes with the skins.

Bolt interferes with skins.

Ok, don’t panic. Think. The 3mm bolt is not really 3 mm, it’s 2.9 mm. That introduces unwanted play, so it is no good anyway. The hole in the link ball is 3.0 mm. Sooo… a bit of 3 mm tubing locked in place should do. And so it was done. Actually this is a much simpler and secure solution. (for now anyway)

inspection hole for elevator linkage.

Last bit for now is the creation of better fitting hinge pins.
