Here we have the tailplane and elevators made in 60 thou. styrene sheet. The elevators are glued on to the tailplane halves with solvent glue at a slight droop, for interest. There are no hints at hinges because the fabric is doped right across the joint twixt tailplane and elevators as is usual with De Havillands, including the much larger Dragon Rapide. Underneath there is a wedge shaped gap to allow for down elevator, but up elevator just slightly wrinkles the fabric.
There's a hole right through the fin which allows access to the horn that operated the elevators, the halves of which are joined with a metal bar. The fronts of the tailplane halves are fitted in holes in the fuselage fairing shape. These are rods of brass wire of 0.8mm diameter. The holes are drilled by hand using a pin chuck. In the photograph it is all held mechanically, prior to detailing the surfaces and gluing them in. As these flying surfaces are different colours from the main colour they will be painted separately and attached last thing, along with the relevant straining wires.
The wire joiners in place.
