Very spiffing mate....thanks for the tip. I'll look forward to trying it out. Besides the extra CMP Spit in the box I have Travel Air Mystery Ship short kit that your little trick might well be perfect for the sheeted wing.
Son as I finish up a current project I need to get that horiz stab replaced on my Spitfire. It's been built with several mods and custom paint to represent Don Blakeslee's MkVb 133 sqn (Eagle). Pics of it are on my blog page: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/member.php?u=208594
