The sanded tail feathers are taped together for fit.

There's a lot of sanding required on this model but fortunately it was 89* yesterday so it could be done outside.

I added 1/16" wood to each side of the fin/rudder and sanded it to airfoil.

It has the wings and tail feathers of a P-51 and looking straight on it looks like an F-86:-) Not surprising as they were all built by North American.

It's getting the stance of a T28 now......

The tail feathers are next. They are made of 1/4" stock and require only sanding to proper airfoil.

The plywood firewall was trimmed to fit inside the aluminum cowl. Once installed, the wood will be sanded to match the cowl. The front landing gear was installed the same way as the main gear.

After a rough sanding...

The side bottom pieces have been sanded flush with the bottom of the fuselage formers. The last piece to be glued on is 1/8" wood.

A very sturdy model this! I wonder what amazing colour scheme David will apply?
