Balsa and spruce is your friend. Wing and tailplane will be easy to replace with the real thing. :-)

I agree, that horizontal stab and elevator are toast but the wing is savable. I would remove the bomb rack and build a jig out of Luan to the dimentions of the wing - upper and lower, heat and clamp and repeat over a few days, a little at a time. I had something worse on a Cosmic Wind and it removed almost all of the bends.

But, I know that Joe has his own method and has a handle on it.

I melted the horizontal stab trying to straighten it so I cut it off and built a new one . I got most of the warp out of the wing. This was a learning experience for me , hopefully I’ll do better next time on trying to fix plastic

It looks great Joe. Only way to do it, cut away the damaged horizontal stab/elevator and build a new one. Formula 560 works to cement it on but I would think that you used epoxy? The rest of the plane looks pretty straight. So glad that you are saving the Cox AD-6/A1.

If you don't already have decals for it, here's some.  Originals used to be for sale on ebay.  You can transfer onto vinyl, sticky back, or white water slides.
