OK. Made some standoffs of hardwood, and tried the covers on the gear. Certainly Stand Off scale, but with some twiddling and adjusting, these will work OK.

I really hate covering,so practise, practise, practise. Pick small flat areas and try to keep the wrinkles out.  Undecided   Not attached yet of course...

Get a few surfaces done and I'll try glassing ...... Angry

Well, another SNAFU!
Found the right elevator half had warped - Vaillencourt had them made from a lite ply trailing edge frame with ribs to the large leading edge.... Huh Sign   The counter balance had twisted so it stuck up into the wind stream....
Anyway, went to cover them ...crapolla.
Took a while with water and heat and twisting t'other way in jigs and BBQ skewer pins epoxied in from the end, and "think"  they're right. They'll do.
cover them now, can't attached to rudder structure till that's glued on...
