Default RE: Midwest Extra 300xs Build

The instructions called for using scrap 1/4" balsa hinge doubler blocks to be installed in the stab between the ribs. I changed this to 1/2" and also added the hinge doublers in the elevator. Then, using tightbond, I glued the trailing edge of the stab and the leading edge of the elevator in place and banded it up to cure overnight. FYI, what I am trying to do with this build is to use the tightbond where there is going to be considerable sanding. I am still using CA in other parts of the build because of the time factor.
