Oh yeah ...
The bit that I forgot to add earlier is re-attaching the fixed trailing edges - important enough to make a note about
- We carefully cut off these parts earlier and saved them.
- We now want to shave off a small amount of the base of these parts to remove the reflex. The difficult part is to take the same amount off each of these three parts so that when they are re-attached, the true trailing endge is straight. I gooped mine on - as its the strapping tape that provides the mose strength to hold them in place.

This is the amount of reflex to start with
This is after the trailing edges are shaved and replaced. Pretty much zero reflex.
Difficult to photograph, but you can see that all three fixed trailing edge parts are aligned. Now we just hope that this will all line up with the elevons in trim....
