Hope you get back to normal soon Ernie, that’s bad luck.

Hi Danny. No doubt I'm being stupid but do we assume Dennis Bryant wants us to glue both the fin and tailplane to the fuselage? Seems a little unusual...

Hi Stuart, yes that is the idea. Its a bit awkward to work out the sequence, as the sternpost, for the want of a better word has to be glued on after covering. Not entirely sure I have worked it out yet.

My apologies if this has already been mentioned, the full size had its fin set at an angle of 7degrees to counteract prop wash (if memory serves) are we intending to do the same?

I should go with whatever Dennis has put on the plan. If the model is IC then prop wash behaves differently with a small fast prop. If you are using a large slow prop with electric, then the offset would be worth considering.
Just my opinion

It's something overlooked in so many scale models. The Fokker D VII and D VIII also had the fin offset and the Messerchmitt BF 109s, from the F series onwards, used a Clark Y section on the fin/rudder. Most scale drawings don't show it, but close examination of photos do show it (as in the Knowlton D VII)

danny as I approached the wire bending I became "chicken" and built a couple of free flight models!! I have bent nearly all of the 12 and 10swg bits but please tell me how to get those acute bends in the cabane joiners? Have I missed a trick and they are thinner wire. Someone please help before I start a different model
