Model template of Douglas AD-5/AI-E Skyraider, famously known during Vietnam War. One of the last piston-powered airplane.
Tail-wing had a small angle for up-push, cut the tail-wing insertion-line accordingly.
Make sure cut enough on top piece for tail wing, so the tail-wing (and vertical tail) wouldn't pushed to left or right. Always try dry-run first, before glue them together.
The weight adjusted well in my hand. Fly well.
