While the F4U-2 was on hold, I went back to Step 4 yesterday morning. I have added parts A17 and A18 as well as parts B20 and B21. The clear parts C1, C3 and C5 will be added after painting.
I then worked on Step 7 which was hard at first to figure out the instructions for the main landing gear.
This is where dry fitting and the use of precision needle cement come in handy.
Steps 8 and 9 will have to wait until I start painting although I glued the pitot tube. I won’t be using the drop tanks for this project.
I will use this as a reference…
Pug Southerland’s Wildcat who flew with the same squadron as Marion Dufilho. Except for F 12, it should look like Marion Dufilho’s F4F-4.
Also as reference… this!
