So, after declaring that I intended to invest at least one hour a day on this build, circumstances dictated that I didn't touch it for months!!
I am now back in the saddle and have rediscovered the motivation to press on with the project, having seriously considered packing up this hobby after over 30 years of building and flying.
Over a week or so of evenings in the workshop, the tailplane is pretty much completed and I'll probably move on to the fin and rudder this week.

With the tailplane and elevators completed, I've moved on to the fin and rudder.
The upper forward ribs of the rudder balance aren't shown on the plan, but it's fairly straightforward to work the shapes out. As for the elevators, the rudder ribs are made from balsa triangles, again easy process of marking out and cutting.
