I am not a fan of airplane designs that capture the elevator upon construction. I like to paint the airplane before attaching control surfaces. I realized this when doing the plans, but also wanted to keep that Corsair tail look. I have a light coat of sealer on the horo stab and the elev. I am going to sand that, and use scotch tape for my hinges, and the paint. Will the paint stick to the scotch tape, I have no clue.

Jigged up the tail, and glued it on. Also cut out some extra wing dihedral wedges out of foam board. So I could use 2 each for the inboard section, and 1 each for the outboard section, so I could glue up the wing all in one shot.

Cool can't wait to see. I am still not able to do much building yet but I do some. Left hand is still swollen but there is progress.

How's the build going Dave? We're you able to start cutting it out?

Paul,

All parts are cut out, and the nose and tail are together, literally in an hour and a half. But was unable to get to it today. I hopefully will get some pictures out and get the wing on tomorrow.
