P-47 Jug: The JUG's Tail Feathers.



UP-DATE 2/13/2011: Got back on the JUG this past week, and got some work done on the 'ole girl's Tail Feathers!

I cut the control surfaces in preparation of re-hinging both the elevator and rudder. But first I needed to install a spar so I routered a groove to install the .220 x .092 flat CF. I glued the spar in with GG, and once cured, I filled with Squadron putty and sanded smooth.

Once the spar was done I started on the hinging. I used some pivot point hinges on the rudder, and some of these Super Lite hinges from HK. This is the first time I have used these, but I must say I do like their concept. They slip in just like a regular pinned or CA hinge. They have a dam which keeps the CA from getting on the pivot section, and were easy to install.

After getting the hinging done, I set out to install the .092 joiner rod on the two control surfaces to eliminate the dual push rod set-up.

I make my own out of .092 piano wire.
