Empennage Fairing

I’m not a docile sheep wearing a Corona-scare face mask, but while sanding and filing fiberglas, I tend to wear a dust mask.

The Empennage Fairing is a tedious part of the build. It’s a more complex form and some builders don’t use the standard fairing in the kit, but construct one themselves.

I don’t have the epoxy/fiberglas skills to go that way, so I’m condemned to sand and drill and then fix stuff again, because I did too much sanding.

The whole Empannage Fairing took me two weeks to get it to the level that I was content with the result.

Good part is that now I do get a feeling for mixing epoxy and flox te fix stuff.

The Empennage is now completely finished, except for the paint job and final assembly once on the airfield.
