1/3 Scale BalsaUSA Super Cub (How-to build custom laminated tail)

I am going to help with a beginners balsa airplane build thread soon, I thought i would share a few simple build techniques.

After 5 years of flying Cubzilla with over 1500+ flights, it is time for a slight rebuild and recover. During glider towing, the tail really takes a lot of stress due to towlines getting caught in or wrapped around the tail. So I decided to upgrade it a bit.
Building a balsa tail with laminated balsa and carbon fiber leading and trailing edges...in about 60minutes!
