Built the rudder and tail. Added a little meat to aid in the shaping.

WOW, has it really been 8 years. What can I say, life got in the way. Nothing bad but it did give me some good times and rough times. With some great stories to tell and memories to remember. How surprise I was to come across this kit, still in tacked all the parts still in good shape. So, I believe I will give it another go. And, my apologies for missing the comments on the previous post. I will go back and update them now.

Built the right wing the same way I did the left wing.

This week I got the left wing framed up kind of to plan. I used a 3/8 square stock balsa to shape a curved movable surface so that I would have a more realistic Aileron seam. I did away with MA4, by aligning the inside curve to the MA4 on plan and built outward from that point. I notched F8, F9, F10, F11, and MA3 to fit over the 3/8 stock. The outside curve became MA2 after fitting and trimming to the same location on the plan layout as MA2. The back third of MA4 was to be the front part of the Flap, however like the center wing it was a little too short. So, I remade MA4 Flap to match MA3. Also added a few supports to the 3/8 stock and the wing tip. The Trim Tabs are very small so I will cut them out and add them at finial shaping. The stringers will be add latter when I dry fit and do the rough shaping. I will start the right wing this week so if any wants more pictures during the build or anything let me know, sorry for this long description.
