F1 (or F4) assembly manual Q&A:

The F1 (or F4) manuals were designed and written when the Czechs were making QB airframes and builders were building the tails, installing the fuel & electrical systems, landing gear, brakes, engine, canopy, fiberglass, prop, and other goodies. The manuals have a wealth of information, photos, text, and drawings in them.

They are issued to builders only. However, we can give you a peek at the general format. The original F1 empennage assembly manual, still relevant, but technically obsolete due to the new Mk3 empennage becoming available, is here: Emp manual – OBSOLETE -for demo use only

Useful drawings: These exploded views of the fuselage bulkheads and other formed parts are useful when considering the relationship between the parts. They are presented here for your convenience. They do NOT show every part!
