P-51D: The Rudder Hinge

The Rudder Hinge Mod

There was an issue with the early version's Rudder hinge dilapidation. I don't know if FMS addressed this issue in the later versions, but this is how I fixed mine.

I used the solid CA hinges, but upon later recommendations I switched to the Slit-style hinge as they dissipates the glue much more efficiently.

NOTE: Tom Hunt suggested I might have performed "Overkill", so maybe 3 hinges would have sufficed?

Also, you might want to check your elevator & aileron hinges as well!
