Thank you ... I had some head scratching moments sorting out some areas .... still not happy with the tail wheel though .. 

When you place her down - the high angle of the fuselage makes the wheel pivot to 90 deg ..... trying to think how to centre it but still allow it to castor. The tail wheel arm is a rod through a 'coffee strirrer piece of tube' glued to the bulkhead. The top of the arm is bent 90 deg in line with C/L of fuselage ... this then provides a stop as it hits bulkhead either side.

My idea is to add rubber band inside fuselage to help keep centred ...
