Then we spent a while laying out the white stripes that will go on the vertical stabilizer and rudder. We’re using Bob’s measurements so that our stripes will match his, but even with those measurements it was still fairly difficult to get the tapes to sit where we wanted. The complex curves near the front base of the vertical stab make for some strange taping patterns.
