It was in my kit when I got it 2 years ago. I seem to be on the one kit a year plan. Just ordered the finishing kit and am on the way to Lakeland to get a thunderbolt engine at what seems to me a great price before they change their minds!

That part gets used to set the ailerons and I know I'll want to recheck rigging once I put the wings on and again if they are pulled to paint. I thought I lost it but it was found.

The jig is also used to mark and drill the canopy release mechanism and something else I can't remember using the holes drilled in it.

I'm not priming it. I left the plastic on.
N1463 seems a good number....

Had two overnighted, which is expensive, but almost ready to move the wing to the hangar. Then I can start on the right wing.

I got tired of moving it back and forth between the wings. I ordered a second one.
