    There definitely is a difference in the exhaust nozzle. Are you planning to fix the problem? I would think moving the nozzles inward until they are almost even with the trailing edge of the tail wing, that the model would then resemble the photo.

    Keep up the good work.

    Ashrunner have a look at previous pics, he has already moved the tail back to the correct position.

    Beautiful, precise work. What glue do you use, what do you use for a scoring tool, and do you make extensive use of tweezers for folding and handling? Lots of questions, I know! =^0

    @ jasco...............the answers.....

    Hi jasco,
    your questions are interesting and now I try to answer :

    what glue: I use UHU ( with solvent) and white wood glue like WICOLL or UHU HOLZ (all glue is german .....)
    scoring tool: it differs in the different cases of working, normally a needle or a used cutting blade....
    tweezers ?: yes I use often tweezers of different shapes.......
    I hope you can understand my broken english, if you have further questions, ask......

    best Regards FLU

    That IS Very Cool! A very good idea for removeable sections. Those new magnets are very strong and I wish I had thought of it!:grin:

    Excellent idea, I will use it on the P-61 Black Widow and the F-15 when I start them. Thank you.

    Seems this is a level above the last project Flu.

    Are you in a learning process of how you build these or has your technique changed.
