RE: Flair 1/4 Scale Tiger Moth Build

The next step is to epoxy the front former I just sanded to match the last former on the front. After that gets done it's time to glue the front to the back half.

RE: Flair 1/4 Scale Tiger Moth Build

I had to take 4 of the sticks off and re-cut them to size and re-glue them to take the twist out of the back half. I also brought the tail end together and glued it up.
