Elevators were very similar to the Rudder, although a lot more parts as you are building 2 of them, and 2 trim tabs.
Only the last couple rivets in each skin were difficult. I had Brian Michael's help again with the proseal steps which really helped.  The time period for the elevators is so long as I build the tailcone while waiting for Brian to be ready for the prosealing step, and then kept with the tailcone before going back to the elevators.
