Rudder rough assembled, waiting on rudder and elevator horns that are back ordered, estimated arrival May 21, not much to do without them.

OOOPs
 
I know the feeling well when you make your first mistake or make the first smilie, it really saps your confidence as you are determined to do everything right, been there!!
I have a matching one on my 9A rudder where the gun slipped and a few others on the way to where I am on my build, the dreaded tip-up canopy.
The expression 'move on' I never understood until now which is when your build is finished and painted you will have forgotten about the smilies and the numerous not 100% formed rivets you will have.
Learnt the hard way about not redoing a non perfect rivet, you do more damage replacing it normally and it sometimes isn't any better.
Keep on trucking!!

progress so far.

Also considering dropping the "A" from my build.

I have a few friends that have taildragger RV9s, they love 'em.
I've never seen an taildragger RV upside down, but I have seen 4 "A" model RV's inverted on the runway. That's reason enough to go tailwheel.

As opposed to ground loops.

do it
 
Not done with my -9 yet, but everyone says it's the easiest taildragger to land they have flown. I'm betting they are right and am looking forward to some new challenges!
Good luck.
