Subject: Tail Group Question
I have been wanting to build a Bug for a while and have a quick question. I have the designs for the cruciform tail group ready to go and was wondering what might be used to "toughen" up the balsa. It says to use 1/16", but it seems like it needs something to stiffen and harder up the wood for a slightly more robust tail group. I was thinking of thinning out some white glue and painting it on then giving it a light sanding, is this necessary? Thanks, Mike
