SE5a combat Gord

My first attempt at building one of these, 34 inch wing span from a 3 view off the internet, Gord please how does the tail look, think the stab/elev. and rudder look big enough?

Stab looks good but the rudder/fin could be a little bigger. Actually I would only make the rudder bigger. It would give you better control at low speed.
 I use the small Olfa knife for cutting out parts and sharpen and replace the blade quite often. For some reason this foam seems to dullen the blades quite fast.
 Lookin good otherwise Dwayne. ;D
 You're probably going to do it anyway , but I double up both sides of the nose back about 4 in. to strengthen it up. Also adds a bit of weight where you need it.
 Another thing. I make the ailerons wider than stock, on both wings, for more control at low speed.
