F-111  Step #8 Assemble The Tail

Prev Step #7   Next Step #9

If you have not covered the stab and Fin do so now. If painted, finish both parts. Clean area of the stab where the fin will be glued. Glue Fin at a right angle to the stab.

Check position of the stab/fin assemble on the fuse. Glue only the first 1/2 in or so. Tack glue the tail end to the fuse. You can add wedges to get the correct stab alignment. A solid stab is near correct on the plans. For a built up stab a 3/32 wedge may be required.
