I'll tell you a tale...I mean tail!

Moving onto the tail section now. Each of the pieces were glued together after giving them a good sanding. As instructed, I then angle sanded each of the tail sides as well as the rear of the body where the tail will be joined. The supplied angle jig enabled me to get the correct angle before gluing. In mounting the tail pieces to the body, I used some epoxy resign just to give it a bit of extra strength.

The wing and body are again joined to check alignment. Just a bit of sanding here and there and everything was spot on.

I'll now move back onto the wing and try to get the servos installed into the body ready for the fixing up to the V-tail.
