If it's not to late, I think that a wing spar is really recommended for this big plane.

And here is the way I represented the closed spoilerons.

Hope it helps.

Speed brake troughs filled with strip styrene. Next I'll putty over those and sand smooth. Rescribe? Maybe.

 

Update: Not gonna putty and rescribe. Pretty much okay as is after some sanding.

Now you're not going to frustrate us by withdrawing such a nice subject, are you? :(

 

I did have a question, just what kind of saw did you use to cut the nose off of the fuselage?

Test fitting the nose piece. More fit problems that will need to be addressed. If it's not one thing then it's something else! (At least the left side fits flush.)

The unevenness/gapping of the joint, John.

 

To avoid that when I cut the nose off my AMtech Merlin-engined P-40F/L:

 

http://forum.largesc...topic=73437&hl=

 

To install the resin nose piece, I used a micro-saw with a miter box, cutting each fuselage half separately, open-side down. That helps ensure a good 90 degree angle vertical cut.

 

To trim the resin nose-piece/plug, I used a flush-cut saw.

 

Still, if I had the gaps, etc., shown above, I could have fixed it, eliminating putty and re-scribing by a simple method-maybe a bit tedious, but simple if you have a flat surface.

 

If you or others wish for me to share more, just PM me, I can fill you in on the rest, to help if you decide to install the resin tail on your P-51, you will have a neater fitting seam.

 

In my case, I needed no putty and did not have to re-scribe the panel line.

 

Otherwise, if others want as well, I can post it in "Tips and techniques" on this website and post a photo or two.

Wow, The beast is looking great John. The different shades of zinc chromite will really will pop out in the end. This will be awesome to see completed. Well done and you seem to be on the downward easy side of this build.

LOL I think you were looking at PLM's post Troy. Sure is colorful!

I'm working on the engines now and they too have a pretty high cuss-factor. Very poor instructions as to placement of various parts.

This doesn't belong here at LSP and your example? well I'll leave it at that.

 

Very non-LSP in tone.

 

Constructive advise is always welcome when requested but not like this.

 

John, we had to hide your response.

Agreed. Constructive advice is fine but a "cut" like this (pardon the pun!) has no place here. Okay about hiding my response. LOL :)

On back burner for the time being. Getting started on the Revell P-51D-5.
