Default Better flap fit

Hi; I had to look through your posts to see what aircraft you are building. Appears to be a rocket?
Anyway, the RV4, 6 and rocket can be more difficult than the prepunched aircraft to get a nice fit at the lower flap to fuselage area. I usually use a piece of aluminum riveted to the bottom of the flap bent to match fuselage. This helps to hide the fact that one flap may be lower than the other by a small amount. I have also seen people build out or box the fuselage to better match the flap bottom.
Build on!
