My early Alpina has stabilizer, bell crank, and fin post installed first. This is logical, for then the wing joiner boxes can be adjusted to fit, and aligned with the stab prior to bonding in place. Long pieces of wood or wire can be inserted in the blade boxes to check alignment with stab, I don't think you will need to plug the wings in for this step. Use of slow cure resin will allow time to check alignment. By the time I get to this step, your model will already be circling to the clouds!! I would post a picture, but our camera is still packed away, somewhere.
