This section of the build is fairly starting to do my head in!
The whole tail section has had to be 'pulled' back into line
The block jigs and a little pressure helped in some place but not others, resulting in a 'good as I can get it' compromise
This had to be re-wired three or four times
I used a light gauge wire for this section because I couldn't put any stress on the tail section without it twisting and breaking (this is a really old model and the previous owner's efforts have damaged some crucial parts). The wire gives it some strength strand by strand, whereas the clear nylon works by having the whole thing tied in end to end
Here are the wings and tail section now fully rigged and tied off, ready for filling and sanding. The Se5a in the middle is the only other aircraft I have ever rigged prior to this attempt. To be honest, I'm not too sure how this will hold up as I have had to improvise around areas that are weak and/or have been repaired. Further progress when I feel like I need a challenge :)
