A10 repairs part 5

So the front mounting for the tailplane (where the dowels go) gave way in the pancaking.


I decided to re-attach it a different way to how it was originally mounted.  Why not make use of my large carbon fibre boom?

I made these hooks (3 in total) from liteply:

That, when laminated together, were epoxied to the back of the dowel plate, which in turn encased the carbon boom : 

Left overnight to dry, cracks were Tite-Bonded, then filled with epoxy this morning.  A little bit of the red spot filler, and a quick test fit.  Job done.
