Madcow Bomarc Build, Part 6, Making The Conduit

Two of the long balsa strips are glued together, side by side.
After drying, cut the two glued pieces to 19 3/4" long. In the picture on the right that part is on the bottom.
From the remaining balsa strip,  cut two pieces 7 1/2" long. Glue these two side by side.
Glue them onto the longer piece, even with the front. The inset picture shows the "step" that fits over the front edge of the wing.

Here's the back end before the long overlay strips was cut to 19 3/4" long.
The back end goes over the spacer strip and over the stabilizer.
A notch will have to be cut through the center for the rudder tab to fit in.
In the picture I've marked where the rudder will fit.
Now the end can be cut to 19 3/4" length.

Here's the notch and measurements for the cut.
The notch should be made 1/8" x 1 1/4" long.
Mark and cut right down the center.

After cutting the notch do a test fit with the rudder notch in place.
