Detail of pushrod exit. I planned to poke angled holes through the fuselage wall, but that didn't quite fit the bill.
The parkzone brick mounted inside the fuse.
I used flexible plastic to create the control horns. It has enough strength, at this scale, to not have any worries of suddenly flexing under pressure. Don't ask me what kind of plastic it is; I couldn't tell you
The nose block is made of 1/8 balsa cut to shape and glued to the front of the ordinary 1/16 former pattern. I'll sand it to shape after the stringers are in.

The fuselage has more than enough room to house the parkzone brick. My main worry is where I'm going to route the pushrods.
The quite modified tale structures. The stab is heavily reinforced, as well as the surfaces, more obviously. The stringers also stand in for the corrugated metal on the scale example, providing a nice solution.
