If you really want to split hairs, at what position will the rudder
and elevator be posed? If neutral, then the control line should be
dead center coming out of the hole, otherwise the line would favor one
If you already closed up the fuselage, you could try the old fashioned
picture hangar method. Drill your 'big' hole, then super glue one end
of the rigging material to the center point of a piece of rod or strut
material. Slip the rod through the hole all the way, then pull back.
To secure the anchor, use a cement applicator (hollow glass tube with
fine syringe type end) to apply Tenax/Ambroid/etc. down in the hole,
bonding the T to the inside of the fuselage. Of course, this method
is only good for flexible rigging material. I prefer the EZ-Line

Not the goal but the game.
