Wingloada,

Quick question about your wood fuselage. Currently as built is the rudder going to be carrying the weight to the plane while it is resting on the ground? If I draw a straight line from the low point on the forward section of the fuse it seems to intersect on the rudder not the aft part of the fuselage. If my interpretation is correct then the rudder will take a bit of abuse on landings and simply resting on the ground inbetween flights. Am I seeing this incorrectly?

Nice looking fuselage by the way.
