Complete newbie to this so have just started build.

I hope the following can assist others with the rudder struts, the two pieces are bevelled at 15 degrees, I sandwiched two pieces of 1mm balsa between the two struts to create the 2 mm spacing. Measure from the top of each station ( F and G ) to get the correct length and cut another 15 degree angle glue in the unit as a whole piece
