sandbagger Posted May 7, 2022 Author Share Posted May 7, 2022 Hi all, More corrections required. The kit instructions indicate that the left and right tailplane's should be attached to the rear sides of the fuselage, using two rods. The illustration shows the inboard ends of the tailplane's being 90 degrees to their leading edges and noticeably clear of the fuselage sides along their entire length. However, it seems that in reality, the inboard ends of the tailplane's were angled to follow the sides of the fuselage and the only noticeable gap was at the rear, where the fuselage tapered to its end. Also, the plywood rear decking is tapered to align with the linen covering over the fuselage stringers. I think 'Lukgraph' assumed that as wood, it wasn't profiled, but fitted horizontal. Unfortunately it can't, like the nose profile, be sanded, as the fuselage skin is too thin and would be open up. A more obvious, but not as easily rectified, error on the kit.
