So, I was getting ready to “finally “ paint mine and was trying out a location to hang it to dry after I minwaxed it... and she slipped off the hanger and landed right on her tail..... 😰

It’s pretty bad, the elevator split, rudder and vertical stabilizer folded like an accordion.....

I’m at the airport now (last business trip of the year) but when I return I’ll take pics...
thinking about it now, might just be easier to cut out a brand new tail.

Good thing I’ll have a couple of weeks to get it ready.

Sorry to hear about that buddy. Sure you’ll have her fixed in no time :).

Big time bummer, you didn't even get to crash her! I'm with mayan, though. No doubt you'll be able to have her fixed and ready to go in time. :)
