Turns out that original tail on Skyboy was designed with much larger elevator. For US market they reduced wing from 168 to 138 sq. ft., airfoil was changed from P3 to 4412 and elevator area was reduced.
Looking at this pictures I see that original elevator was much bigger. This is good news to me! If I can find original blueprint with dimensions, then I can build new larger elevator without worrying of over stressing the tail pipe. Horizontal tail volume will go up and this is maybe all I need!
Is my thinking correct?
Pictures below is what I have now:
