Rudder fairings done

We finished filling and sanding the rudder fairings and their gaps:

and finally covered them with primer (which I have to say ended up being less smooth than the sanded surface :) but it's only temporary until paint anyway):

The only empennage fairing left now is the top VS fairing, which has a huge gap to be filled in the forward portion.

Time lapse:

Total empennage fairing rivets: 175
Total empennage fairing time: 98.9h
