23 November 2011. Today Tail Feathers (but I’ve been told is an obsolete expression…). Well, obsolete or not, today I covered in White Modelspan of the stabilizer and Elevator, Fin and Rudder of both the Mk. III and the Mk. II. They were 8 different pieces, to be covered both sides.

Once again, real attention had to be paid in order not to impregnate with water the 1/16th covering of the stabilizer. I didn’t prepare the wood; I sprayed water very sparingly and then applied the glue mostly on the borders. I’m quite pleased with the result. By the way, the Stik stabilizer looks fine, once completely dry!
