Fuselage & Bomb Assembly
The big event for the day was getting the fuselage halves joined.
Everything lined up well, but there was a slight warp in the halves. So clamping was necessary.
My time was limited tonight, so the only other thing I got to was assembling the 500 lb bombs that will be under the wings.
I’ll have to do some seam clean up when they’re all dry. This kit comes with a choice of the bombs or 108 gallon paper drop tanks. Since the tanks weren’t used in China where this Mustang was based I went with the bombs.
So short session tonight. I expect the fuselage will need a little tidying up tomorrow.
