How do the large model fin/rudder/stabiliser get 'signed off' Geoff?


See you in a week or two for more work.😊

I have an inspector from the LMA. To check the workmanship for the CAA to make sure it's airworthiness

What I was trying to get at was if all the pieces are inspected separately and are they tested in any way?

I think it's up to the examiner,

Busy weekend, thanks to Mark helping me to glass fuselage.

Resin, glass then peel ply all went well.

Also starting to finish the plug with resin and a colour additive before rubbing down
