Brief Description:  Vertical Fin Plastic Tip 7 - ISSUE

After installing this tip, I noticed it was not symetrical. In photos below you can see it leans to one side. Notice the gap between the straight edge and tip on one side, and the different gap on photo 2 indicating the tip leans over. Darn if I had noticed this before riveting I probably could have fixed it.

Also notice in photo 3 the rudder tip reveals itself outside the cross section profile of the more forward VS tip. I don't think this is good enough. I'll post to Van's Airforce and see what other builders suggest.
