Default HOB 2S coming out of the box party

I am the owner of a (still in the original box) HOB 2S that I have had for ---let's see----24 years. I am going to finally commit the contents to the insults of my workbench. After looking it over, I am thinking that it would profit from carbon to replace the cedar arrow shaft leading edges, and a V tail conversion to get the stab out of the grass and the rudder off the side of the fuse.

Has anyone built one of these? Is there anything I need to know?

I just finished and flew a HOB 2T that had been sitting around in the box for 12 years...converted to electric, added spoilers and a vee-tail.
Easily done. fles well.

Paul,

Just curious as to the specifics of the V-tail. Do you have any detail I can work from or can you direct me to some site?
