This shows the difference in width between the V-cut for the top skin (I believe it's 150mm) and the bottom skin, where it is 100mm wide. I can't find anything on the plan regarding this difference in width between the 2 sides, but this is how the CNC-cut skin came in my tail kit.

I was wrong... should have just measured it before posting.  It's 130mm across the top and 100mm across the bottom... I need practice "eyeballing" in metric!

Thanks Brian; I was thinking that the distance from the trailing edge to the cutout channel should be different between top and bottom; didn't think that the width would be that different. My elevator skin is a plans built part and I'll post a pic when I have the cutout done.
