Thanks to those who have replied. Like Johnwohl only a couple of clicks and the Blaze was right. I'll have a look at the gluing but no problems I can see other than that I felt the Tail end could have been a little too flexible from side to side. This was solved by running a length of 18mm glass strapping the full length of the fus' and around the end. So far no problems.

As for the Blizzard this is a different ball of wax. It is distinctly intended to run with more power and faster. Because of this I'm sure anyone who has been interested will know of the strapping "upgrade" that Multiplex recommend to increase rigidity. This is one of the first times I can recall of such an upgrade to one of their aircraft (maybe I'm wrong) but although I know of a couple of Blizzard fliers both show some respect during flight.

At the price here in Oz I feel that if considering more of a speed beast I think I'd pay the little extra price a buy warmliner glass from the get go.
