I don't understand: "I rounded the leading edge of the elevators and tail and sanded a hollow into the trailing edge of the vertical hand horizontal stabilizer, so they have a nice fit with little gap. "

Please explain, and/or show a close-up image.

  Hey Michael,
 What Rob and I did was create concave profile on the rear edge of the horizontal stabilizer and convex profile on the leading edge of the elevators. This creates a nicer looking gap.
 The concave profile is created by wrapping sandpaper around a half inch dowel and sanding as required.

  So I now have wing tip floats and wing tips for the main wing built. As with my tail, I fully sheeted  the wing tips and built it slightly differently than the plans.
