Can you please guys help me? I have made the upper 7F41 and I am about to make the 2A and 2B. I have a couple of questions. Do I need to clamp at the hinge before bending and drilling?. Also 7F43 matches the hole pattern of 2A-2B? Thank you.

Please let me know if I am not clear

What I did was cut both the blanks for 2 a and b and  drilled the hole for the rudder pivot in both and bent them. With the top hinge plate mounted to the fusilage I then used a rod thru the pivot holes thru all three hinge plates for alignment then was able to drill for one of the lower hinge plates and then match drilled the second plate. Hope that helps. Dan.
