I looked at the stab and rudder and figured they weren't worth reskinning so I made a new set. I kept the same surface area for the rudder but changed the shape.

I then covered everything up using a 50/50 mix of water and white glue. I stretched the tissue using rubbing alcool and then "doped" everything with one coat of Krylon gloss clear, makes for a nice finish. Next, flight test!

Hello everyone. I packed away all my FF stuff 10 years ago and right about now, I'm real happy I did because I caught the bug again. First job is to restore this stick of my own design to flying condition. It's a 16 inch wingspan job that flies very well. After I get her in the air, I'll get going on a brand new project. Glad to be here. Smiley
