Default RE: TF GS P47 Build - yeah another bloody one!!

excellent Kirk, wish I had that much done.

Did a bit of work Sat morning but it was way too hot and humid to do much more as we had 39C that day.

Have completed the stab and elevators but have not shaped the Elev LE, in fact I will not be using the bevel shape but will use a radius and then will use a thin piece of ply to extend from the stab TE over the airgap as per the full size. Fin and rudder will be the same set up.

So have now also built the fin and rudder just prior to sheeting, the skins are done, just have to glue them on then that lovely job of sanding etc. yuk Though the razor plane and bar sander make easy work of it.

One thing you guys may like to look at is the following link for scale fowler flap hinges by Robart - yummo got to have a set of these!
