Vertical Stab – Finished

Vertical stab is finally completed with hinges and forward skin attached.

Boelube on screws helps a lot attaching the forward skin.

Could not find how much torque is required for the hinges bolts. The bolts go into nutplates. They seem to be soft. I don’t think they are as strong as normal nuts.

Anyway, after some research I set the torque to about 40. It feels tight enough.
