Ken thanks for your help in messages.
Should wing set dead flat on pylon? I built per plan, I have the 1/8" runners on the platform and keys set. But I have a lot of rock in wing, maybe another 1/8" back to front and side to side. Maybe I want some in there to adjust for wash but seems like too much. Some sanding would take care of it but need to know if I should keep all that play in the wing.

Nevermind, think I have it figured out. Wing is fairly stable with a few rubberbands, one of the runners was split so didnt have a good fit. Seems like force would tweak wing in flight though, not sure how "stable/tight" wing needs to be for flight. Should it move at all? Havent put tight bands on it yet, still need to glass these areas.

You certainly don't want rock in the wing or the stab. Anything you can do to prevent that would be most helpful because you can't trim the model if everything is moving. Keep in mind that you can induce a turn using stab tilt. The model will turn to the high side of the stab. Start with it level and see what happens but shimming it up with a piece of ply can assist in trimming. I know you said this model has a pylon but just for future reference, if a model has dowels to rubber band the wing on, DON'T glue the dowels in. This will allow everything to fly apart if it happens to spin in and catch the wing.

Need to do some sanding then to get this wing to stabilize on pylon.
Dont glue dowels in!! Already did, they barely fit in there, walls very thin on both sides of pylon at hole, thought I needed glue, or they would bust out. Wish I knew what I was doing.
Ready to spend way too much on a timer, auction ends in 5 min, unless the other guy wants to spend way too much.
Thanks Ken.

$96 with shipping:damn: , like I said somebody wanted this timer as bad as I needed it, old Hank at Texas Timers should have kept a few stashed, like holding gold. Now I have to make a flyable model.
