It is best to cut the slot for the fin first, then use that as a datum for mounting the tail plane. When all the tail plane & fin have been fitted as required the boom assembly can be aligned on the board using a couple of scrap balsa pieces to hold the tail plane square and parallel to the board, to glue the assembly into the front fuselage that is flat on the board on it's base.

Someone has modified this so as the boom is secured with an M6 nylon bolt so as it can be transported in a small package the length of the centre wing panel, if taking abroad.
