    More in-depth pics of the damage. I just have to get some triangle blocks (or make some) to finish working on it.

    I am using tri-cycle landing gear so it is on the nose heavy side. It gave you options for a tail dragger or tri-cycle gear. I chose tri-cycle gear. (Don't remember why, probably had something to do with my trainers.)

    I have some spare wood. I am going to try to make some extra pieces to use as braces.

    I found some extra stock I had for making fuse boxes. I made rough outlines of the areas needing to be replaced.

    I had one of those H9 sticks many years ago and it virtually fell apart from the poor factory glue job. I would not rebuild what is broken because of the way it is broken. It's gonna fly bad. With the tail completely off I think your best bet is to rebuild the whole fuse using the broken parts as guides for the wing saddle and stab/tail locations. This is the simplest way to get a true and strong flying plane….plus you can jazz up the Hanger 9 color scheme.

    I know this is not what he wanted to hear.....but coming from a flyer who has previously owned one and experienced its characteristics, could be words to consider. Nothing worse than putting all this time and money into a re-build and just have to do it again later on. If this was a plane you built yourself and knew it was built well, the fix would be a no-brainer.

    Good choice on re-building. I had a 30 of that model. Being dumb, flying in the back yard at my in-laws, I ripped the entire tail section off. Re-built it and you can't tell it ever happened!

    You are lucky the dog didn't use his rifle to shoot at the cat
    Looks like some clean breaks, some glue can fix that

    On the right side with the most damage, I would cut that out back to the first former/bulkhead and replace it with a new piece of balsa. If you can;t repair the other side replace it too. Cut some plates out of light-ply if you have or use some square stock to reinforce the joints of the new pieces up against the former on the inside. You will get it . Just take your time ,think about it a few times, measure twice,cut once, etc...

    Thx
    flyinwalenda. I plan to cut the whole rear portion up to the bulkhead and replace it with some lite-ply. I will use square stock, same as shown in the pics, to reinforce the joints. I do plan on taking my time. This is my 1st rebuild and I want to do it right. I am in no rush. I have other planes to fly.

    Chill man, it's a hobby! No time schedule on this. Real life comes first. Whenever you get to it is just right.
