    Thanks John and Alex. I know I certainly didn't like the look of bent mounts and such. I am just getting started on the fuselage so this was a good press to test on how to approach the rest of it all.

    I used some 10L washers on the rudder hinges so that I didn't end up bending the tabs. Yes, there are a lot of places you can use washers to space and shim up things.
