The Vertical Stabilizer is finished!

I noticed that the skin on the RV-9A VS is much thinner than my buddies RV-7A. This VS is as light as a feather. I guess Vans' needed to make the VS as light as possible to make up for the long (and somewhat heavy) Horizontal Stabilizer, which also has a much thinner skin than the RV-7A.
