Nice work! I'm glad to see I am not the only one that makes hinges out of the film covering. I thought I was weird.

Here is my last covering job like you mentioned above.

Attachment 66152 Tape fin and rudder down with a small gap so they don't move.

Attachment 66153 Cover with your choice of film on one side, then the other ensuring film goes down into the beveled edge on the rudder.

Attachment 66154 Ops check to make sure the rudder moves easily. Repeat for elevator.

I really like this method and have given up on the 3M Dubro tape hinge method except for foam planes where no film is used.
