Default Set of Seeker tail molds to Matney

I'm sending a set of molds made from the same male molds as the ones I sent to Dave Norman a while back to Kevin Matney.

Dave has made plenty of tails for his own use. I believe he used the tail on a Seeker he placed at the NATS with.

It uses an airfoil section and the area is about the minimum you would want to use on a Quickie. But Dave has had good success with it on his Seeker and at it's moments.

If needed. maybe he can help Kevin get the techniques down to produce the tails for general consumption. I know Kevin already produces composite tails, but I think this one is thicker than Kevin's and may require some special techniques.
