Rudder Repair

Removed the damaged fabric and identified any broken structures.

Glued original parts back in place where they had split along the wood grain or come away.

Covered with new fabric using Balsarite, to prime the wood surface, and then adhered the light weight Coverite using a finishing iron.

Used the iron to heat shrink the fabric to the structural frame.

Painted the new installation using thinned enamel paint sprayed from an airbrush.
