In between other jobs I gave the fin a dose of the filler/sand/primer treatment.With the wing attached,propped the plane up level on the board,and checked across the canopy base with the straight edge.With everything squared to lines laid
out on masking tape,centred the front of the fin using the waxed paper template,and got even measurements from the fin apex to the l/e tips.And a square to check for 90* to the board.I must have done something right as every thing fell into place without any persuasion.Next carefully remove the wing,apply some glue to the fin/fus joint and recheck.The fin is a good tight fit so wont need clamping.
With the fin fixed I can use some filler to fair it into the fuselage and get the whole thing prepared for final paint.
