Mounting the vertical fin

The elevator and TE of the horisontal stab was covered before progressing - doing it now really simplifies the covering job.

The vertical stab was mounted using 30-min epoxy. Aligment is done by the black string in the picture. The T-pin used for aligning the wing and horizontal stab is used once more. The string is run from the nose, around the rudder and back up front. You can then easily align the rudder, as small movements show up really well with the string(s). Make the string run equal along both sides of the rudder, and you will have perfect alignment!
