More dismantling last night – Tailplane

Having completed the rudder and elevators I started removing all the tail fin wire bracing and took off the starboard tailplane, having first marked up all the cables I lovingly crafted so many months ago

I could then see I had missed one piece of waxoyl on a joint .. this could now be covered ready for the re-assembly.

Now I could complete those small ply material covering landing plates at the leading edge of the tailplane.

‘Plane looks quite ’empty’ with no tail feathers now 😦


Made me realise the re-assembly sequence is going to be interesting … not sure how that might work so will need to call Paul in Norfolk !
