But use round toothpicks, they do a nice job, and are east to work with.

I hope not, I use a T pin for holding my antennas to the rudder on a lot of planes!

Like Ron said though, pinning hinges is a lot easier with the round toothpicks. Just drill a hole and push through, a drop of this CA and trim them off. Easier than clipping the hard wire pin and nothing to catch and cut yourself on.

or a little dollop of yellow glue then shove it in. let dry then sand flush and cover.

I did this after my final covering. I figgered I could just use a hole punch to punch out a nice round circle to cover the pin. Uh Uh. The hole punch is not sharp enough. So plan before you execute.

I agree with the other guys about using round toothpicks to pin the hinges.

I fit the ctl surfaces before covering & drill a hole from the bottom surface but not through. This way it does not show on the top of the surface.

I then cover the ctl surface and wing , etc. Then I intstall the ctl surfaces and pin the hinges with the toothpicks .

Just my method.
