Thanks Blink. Perhaps a separate piece of modelspan for the tip applied wet will do the trick.
and er..., yes; thanks Joe (not Dad!!).
and speaking of Build Logs, I often think it would be an excelleent idea if we had an annual poll on this Vintage & Old Timer forum for the best build thread of the year; what do you chaps think?

The Contest Kits Cranwell buils continues...

In spring a young man's (or old man's?) fancy turns to....mowing lawns, planting out the garden and ...trying to finish the build since the flying season is at hand. No chance of flying anything here in Central France at the moment; a terrible, violent and cold north wind is blowing. This is not unusual in the first 2 weeks of May; in France it's known as "les Saintes-Glaces" and you plant your tomatoe plants out once the cold has ceased.
Here are some pics of the build. I think this one will soon be finished and I hope to get it in the air before the closing date.
