I think I might have an answer if anyone is still doing, to the tail section.
After finding part 118 was wrong, plenty cussing and bothering ppl, I decided that it would have to come off. So I mananged to jemmy part 118 and part 102 off. Cutting me in the process mind.
I looked in a few books and at other parts of the fuselage and lo, the weight saving holes in the fuselage line up.
I attacked the frame that the box fits to with a burr and chopped a little bit of the side strip away, and used that as a base. I attached the side rails to this and used it to line up part 118, it is about 1mm out. Then I put some cocktail sticks in the holesto act as a guide. I think this will give a much more pleasing line to the back. Just got to figure how to temporarily hold it together to see how the rest line up.
Part 102 is too long if parts 116b and 117b are at right angles to the box bit.
