Task: Picked up Emp Kit and Inventoried

Today I picked up the empennage kit! Amazing how many parts are in 2 boxes! I spend several hours ensuring all parts were accounted for.

This duct tape was tough to get off the skins without tearing the vinyl.

Lots of hardware bags. It took quite a while to count each individual item within each bag. I did not, however, count the bags full of rivets. I'll trust there is a lb there!

I organized the parts in the harware bags into more meaningful containers.

Then I seperated and shrink wrapped the HS, VS, Rudder, and Elevator parts.

Here are the VS components ready to be shrink wrapped.
