3. Turn the model back over and set it on a fl at table

so that the wings are level. Take a few steps back and
visually check the alignment of the horizontal tail. Adjust
the horizontal tail until it is parallel with the wing. Small
adjustments can be made by gently tapping the horizontal
tail on the high side with your fi nger.

4. Being careful not to disturb the alignment, wick about

5-8 drops of regular thin CA into the tail boom to fuselage
pod joint. Carefully set the model aside and let the glue
