Not sure just what you're asking about....If you're talking about the rubber in the pictures, that's probably Tan II aeromodeling rubber for rubber powered models. Found at many suppliers such as : Volare, Easy Built etc.

I assume the "bolt" you are referring to is the aluminum tube that is slipped through holes in the fuselage usually around 3/32 inch diameter.

You're welcome! You were lucky. You just happened to ask 1 of the only 2 questions that I knew the answer to. Grin

Perfect!  I DID miss that (the tissue cut where the peg is).

And thanks for the pic on the instrument to try and construct to help with getting the rubber back to the peg.

Appreciate it!

Mike, what you might possibly be missing is the tissue cut out under the bay that carries the rear peg. Here's a pic of one of mine. The only other thing that might be a bit unclear to someone new is " How do I get the rubber all the way back to where it has to be to catch it with the peg?"

Something similar to pic # 2 will help. I've never seen one for sale (which means very little), but they are fairly easy to build for yourself.

Hope this helps!

I received an old Guillow's Javelin for my first stick and tissue plane.  I have been slowly getting back into FF rubber powered from my childhood days.

As I'm getting close to finishing I am trying to figure out the "trick", if you will, of getting the rubber attached to the rear dowel.  Should I be doing that BEFORE I put the covering tissue on, because it seems (to a novice like me anyway) a little bit of a chore to try and do that once the covering tissue is attached all around the fuselage. 

And I'm guessing I might have the same question with other stick and tissue models.

Any tips, guidance or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks for the help!
