Bored,... Decided to use a cold day to accomplish 3 things:
1) Narrow the landing gear.
2) Shorten the tail length.
3) Raise rear stance up a little.
I NEED to break down and put a wheel pant on that front WHEEL!!!
Not much else to report here,... Jus' thought I'd post something!

Hey there Chris!!
The tail is from a Snobird Challenger (I believe). Have been told that the stab is inadequate, but I have'nt noticed any bad tendencies. If ya want pix , I could take some more. Stay in touch!

Dale Young : Been a while since we talked on the phone. I believe you said something about being in a different state and your bird was somewhere else....anyway Thanks for the pictures ahead of time. Brother is looking at painting his bird he said Red, white & blue I am thinking the tail will be White because of all the problems I have had with mine bubbling up in the heat / sunlight.....
Tails looks like it works great............I have been thinking about trying the tall tail on mine but I might have to shorten the back a little.

I've got everything in Indiana at the moment. The tall tail seems to be a great idea and they look really good. Looking forward to seeing the outcome!

Dale Young :
Now that I have the machine I can make the parts I need for the top and bottom spar attachment on the tall tail also.

The "Bee Different" comes to mind . And that bee was one of the neatest that I've seen yet!
