Gordon's models ALL work well. A friend built one of these Fokker DVII from the plans about 8 years ago, (electric), flew great! Have no worries.
If your buddy has any pictures or build tips, I'm be happy to receive the help!
These tail feathers are quite sturdy. I'm tempted to cut some lightening holes in the core of the areas between the 'ribs'.
I think it would be best to cover the tail feathers prior to gluing to the fuselage. Maybe even have the vertical stabilizer tab-into the horizontal stabilizer.
