Default Estes F-22 B/G question.

I'm getting ready to epoxy the twin rudders onto the airframe of an Estes F-22 B/G.

The question is: I don't know which way the little bevel goes--to the front or to the rear. The instructions don't quite show.

Thanks!

Jeff

The real one doesn't have it at either end. I would imagine it goes to the front since it is recessed in a slot and would disappear. That way, the correct angle is maintained above the fuselage, yet you get a squared slot with more surface mating for glue to hold better.

Links because the first two images are really big.
