Pack 7
Steps 1 – 16 Tail Section and Vertical Stabiliser

Using a craft knife, remove the individual elements one by one from the pre-cut wooden framework as you need them. Finish each piece by smoothing it with fine sandpaper to remove the brown laser ash residue from the parts, taking care not to change the shape of the parts.


Fit together and glue pieces 6A1 and 6A2, as shown in the photograph. The cross piece 6A2 must be at right angles to the upright 6A1.

Then attach and glue piece 6A3.

Turn the assembly over. Fit and glue piece 6A4 to the upper part of the assembly and piece 6A5 to the lower part.

Turn the assembly on its end so as to be able to work on the underside. Fit and glue both pieces 6A6 as shown in the photograph.

Fit and glue pieces 6A7, 6A8, 6A9, 6A10 and 6A11.

Fit and glue the two pieces 6A12 onto pieces 6A9, 6A10 and 6A11, referring to the photograph.

Fit and glue pieces 6B1 and 6B2 to each other, checking that the pieces are at right angles to each other.

Fit and glue pieces 6B3 and 6B4 onto each side of 6B2. (See two pictures)

Add pieces 6B5 and 6B6 as shown.

Then, fit and glue pieces 6B7 and 6B8 in position.

Fit and glue pieces 6B14 onto either side of 6B2. (See two pictures)

Then, fit and glue the pieces 6B9 and 6B21 onto piece 6B1, on both sides of 6B2, as shown. Then fit and glue pieces 6B10, 6B11, 6B12 and 6B13, onto both sides, as shown. (See two pictures)

Fit and glue pieces 6B15, 6B16, 6B17, 6B18, 6B19 and 6B20 in the positions shown in the photograph. Also fit and glue pieces 6D1 to both sides of the assembly.

Glue pieces 6D2 onto pieces 6D1, assembled in the previous step. Then fit and glue the whole completed piece from this step to the assembly completed in Step 6.

Sand the area formed by pieces 6D1 and 6D2, between pieces 6A3 and 6B20 (outlined), to give it a rounded shape.


Save any unused parts in a bag labeled with the stage number for future use

Steps 17 – 32 Right and Left Stabilisers.

Fit and glue piece 6C1 in position, as shown.
Take piece C50. Shape it if necessary, then fit it so that it is flush with the surrounding pieces, as shown. Then, fix it with drops of adhesive from inside the structure.

As you did in the previous step, shape, fit and glue piece C51.

Fill and sand the join between the pieces fitted in the two previous steps. Take particular care with the finish. Later these pieces will be painted chrome.

Fit and glue pieces 6C3 onto the upper side of piece 6C1, as shown. Then continue the assembly by attaching pieces 6C12, 6C13, 6C14, 6C15, 6C16 and 6C17 to the upper side piece of 6C1 as shown.

Fit and glue piece 6C2 onto the rear side of piece 6C1, as shown

Working on the underside of part 6C1 fit and glue piece 6C4 followed by pieces 6C19, 6C20, 6C21, 6C22, 6C23 and 6C24 as shown.

Then, fit and glue pieces 6C5, 6C6, 6C7, 6C8, 6C9, 6C10 and 6C11, as shown. Then fix piece 6C18 to the end.

Fit and glue pieces 6C26 and 6C27 in the positions illustrated.

To assemble the other side of the tail, repeat the operations carried out from Step 17 to Step 26 symmetrically, using the pieces from the second pre-cut framework and pieces C52 and C53.

Fit stringers in all the notches in the tail assembly. Remember that, if necessary, you must adapt the notches with a file so that the external side of the stringer is flush with the ribs.

Do not forget to fit stringers into the inside areas of the tail assembly. Then remove the surplus wood at the rear, marked in red in the photograph, sanding it precisely to achieve a flat surface.

Take piece SD51. Remove any burrs from the moulding with a file and abrasive paper. Fit it and fix it in position as shown.

Fill and sand the joins between the individual laser pre-cut pieces, in the areas indicated by the red lines in the photograph.

Steps 33 – 38 The Rudder.

Start assembling the rudder. Fit and glue pieces 6E2, 6E3, 6E4 and 6E5 into piece 6E1, as shown.

Then fit and glue pieces 6E13 and 6E14.

Fit and glue pieces 6E6, 6E7, 6E8, 6E9, 6E10 and 6E11 onto both sides of the rudder. (See two pictures)

Take pieces C41 and C42 and sand them lightly.

Fit and glue them as illustrated, to the rudder.

Take the 0.8mm diameter brass rod. It will form a hinge between the tail and the rudder. Test the rod in place, then remove it for the moment to continue with the assembly. Keep the rod in a safe place, for use later.

Sand both sides of the trailing edge of the rudder, indicated by the red line, to form a sharp edge, as shown in the two photographs below.

Take the two parts so far assembled and fill any gaps in the wooden structure with modelling putty. Leave them to dry, sand off the excess putty, then paint both parts dark green. Note: The rudder is shown attached for illustration purposes only.

Steps 39 – 56 Plating the Tail Section.

Begin cladding the tail, following the procedure explained and used for the fuselage. Prepare and glue cladding piece A6aL. To position it correctly, check that the upper edge is aligned with the line of the join between pieces 6B1 and 6B21.
Next, prepare and attach piece A6bL, the upper edge of which is lined up with the top of piece A6aL. Remember that you must shape each piece correctly and adapt it to the ones next to it, before gluing it permanently.

Continue the cladding with piece A6cL.

Complete the upper left section with piece A6dL.

As you did for the left side, clad the right side of the assembly with pieces A6aR, A6bR, A6cR and A6dR.

Shape and glue piece A6eL into the lower part of the left side.

Also shape and glue piece A6fL, as illustrated.

Repeat the operations of the two previous steps on the right side with pieces A6eR and A6fR.

If you are going to fit lighting to the model, pass a length of thin wire through the centre of the structure to act as a guide when you fit the lighting cables later. Continue cladding the lower part, shaping and fixing pieces A6gR and A6gL.

Complete the cladding of the lower part with pieces A6hR, A6hL, A6iR and A6iL.

Prepare, shape and glue cladding pieces A6jR and A6jL onto the top part of the tail plane.

Fit pieces A6kR and A6kL onto the underside of the tail plane.

Prepare, shape and glue cladding pieces A6mR and A6mL to the upper part of the leading edges.

Shape and glue pieces A6nR and A6nL to the underside.

Prepare, shape and glue cladding pieces A6oL and A6oR. Then, prepare cladding piece A6p. Shape and adjust this cladding piece on both sides, then glue in place, as shown in the two photographs below.

Clad the upper leading edge of the fin by shaping and gluing pieces A6qL and then A6qR to it. Cut two aluminium strips 1.5mm wide and glue them to the side edges of the rudder supports, indicated by the red arrows, then cut off the excess.


Prepare cladding pieces A6sL and then A6sR. Shape them and fit them onto the rudder, as illustrated.


Shape and glue pieces A6t and A6u, as shown. From the 1.5mm wide strip of aluminium, cut a piece to fit around the top of the rudder, as indicated by the arrow.
