Subfins


Ooops! I've had a good look at www.seawings.co.uk where there are some excellent walk-rounds including four different 415s, and it's clear that I was wrong (as was the little 3-view I was working from) and that the sub-fins are inclined to port to induce a turn to starboard, so that they counteract the torque from the engines. But this still raises an issue about scale fidelity, as I don't feel comfortable with such a large turning moment at 1/16th scale. So mine are now straight.
