I just got done jigging the tail former up and installing the shafts into. Tails are ready for skins on the other side. Need to find so 1/16 balsa to build the skins.

I just got done glueing the rear section to the tail former. I used some milled glass in the epoxy to fill in all the voids around the tail shaft area.

Sorry for the late reply took a break from it for a while, plus lacking funds. Just had to get a new computer been living in the stone age way way to long. fans will be what I can afford at the time. Either C/S 12's or maybe a couple of the jetfan 90's

Yup need some balsa sheet. I cannot make up my mind if I want to pin them on and sheet after with no access hatch. Or make them removable so if I need to take them off I can. Probably will make them removable easier to sheet and glass that way.
