    Oh, I´m sorry, but the rudders are not movable. They look alike, but they were fixed.

    ...and here the finished tail section.

    oops, another difficult word I´m looking for. "Flügelwurzel" in German - wordly translated wing root. Is it the same in English ?

    Anyway, you have to be careful in this section, because its important for the clean building of the wing surface.

    First check if the structure fits good in place. Make necessary corrections than glue it in the right position.

    starting with the lower middle section, you have to do some good work for forming the round parts at the front.
