Received Empennage Kit From Van's

Today was a happy day. I received my tail kit via Fed EX this morning. Van's notified me on Friday that the kit was shipping so I am surprised to see it so soon on Monday. It is kind of nice living within a 1 day shipping radius from Van's.

Here they are. They famous first two boxes. They seem so small to contain a complete tail of an airplane.

The smaller box contains the fiberglass parts, trim servo, ribs and the hardware bags. There are a zillion rivets!

The larger box contains the skins and spars for the HS and VS. Everything is neatly packed. There is no wasted space.
