Don't worry Scott - its not all epoxy, just some areas. Although I've come to love quickset epoxy - its cheap and very versatile. But heavy. I found my gremlin, and ist only partially fixable. The one side has bent dirrferently to the other. Normally when I cut long thin bits, I number them and mark the ends so that I use bits that were next to each other in the sheet of balsa, but as I only cut five for this one I didn't bother. The result is that I think the port top stringer is a little harder than the starboard one. I've adjusted the cross pieces, but there is still a bit of a wave there. Its not a biggie, as the overall alignment is good, and its probably only me that will notice anyway . . . but its annoying!

Thanks for the tail info, I went and printed the wrong plan in my enthusiasm!
