Right. How do I build the Tail Boom/Tailplane assembly accurately to the fuselage datum line and hold in position until finished (Top Half).
After a couple of days and copious amounts of building fluid here`s how.
Made Depron building board of the tail boom outline connected by Depron to be removed when finished and an oblong temporary vertical fin plate all aligned vertically and horizontally with the fuselage/pod datum lines.
WEll, that`s the plan anyway.

Yes Dom, I must confess it does but then, size does matter.
Josh, I also had a job finding three views with cross sections. I had to guess most.
