I mount the wing first and on a large flat sorface i make sure from tip to surface on both sides measure the same.then I glue on the stab making sure tip to surface is the same and from wing tip to stab tip is the same and from centerline at firwall to each stab tip is the same.after the glue dries I glue on the rudder using a triangle to keep it 90 degress to the stab and straight on the centerline

It's a trainer. Doesn't have to be exact to make it fly.

Where is the tail? Can you strip the covering off and slide it right back into place? That should be close enough. The broken wood should go back together like a puzzle. Should fit back almost perfect. Just slide it back in there and check the fit. Then pull it out and put some epoxy in there. Slide it back in and clamp it untill the epoxy dries.

Yes a trainer is more forgiving, and can be set up less than perfect, but it is always better to have things lined up (as per the original design) as well as you can.
