Horizontal stabilizer to fuselage gap filing

3 posts in this topic

Posted · Report post

My Merlin GT has significant gapossis between the horizontal stabilizer and the fuselage - see photo.  Fabricating a fiberglass faring would be no big deal, but I'm looking for ideas about attaching the fairing - I could put a doubler on the fabric (similar to a reinforcing ring for an inspection plate) and use sheet metal screws - good idea? Yer gonna die? Do something else?

A small strip of plastic or aluminum glued on to the fabric to screw through should work fine, Otherwise Velcro to try it first,

I've got the same thing on my HS, but mine is not covered yet - just figured on some plywood rib and spacers that would be covered with fabric.  But will welcome any other suggestions.    I wonder how much difference it makes?    EDMO
