Paul, You will need to cover the elevator and rudder surfaces with film. If you haven't already fitted the hinges and glued them to the tailplane and rudder, then it will be a simple matter to cover them with film remembering to create the slots for the hinges, dry fit and then remove them before covering. After covering the hinges can be glued and don't forget to pin the hinges in place with wooden cocktail sticks to prevent them pulling out under flight loads.

If you have already glued the hinged surfaces in place then it will be a tricky job but one which must be done. Best of luck. Eric
