Stuck, sucks

Get out!

Ok, these are the bolts that hold the aft of the horizontal stabilizer onto the fuselage.

I have removed the nuts, but the bolts are frozen in place. I shot with penetrating oil and tapped on them so we will see. I guess heat could be next.

I checked my project fuselage and those lugs seem smooth, so I don’t think they are threaded in.

Elevator cables

Holy smokes, I thought removing the elevator control cable would be easy, but the upper one is buried in the vertical stabilizer!

I found that loosening and raising the vertical stabilizer made it easier.

This is not my project plane, this is a donor fuselage.
