at this point I took out the highteck gear lined up the fues with a laser level because the fues is not built flat on a table I had to make sure it stays nice and strait
now it was time to glue the stringers I made sure to glue them flush with the formers the slots were cut wider than the stringers so i filed them in with epoxy thickend
with cabosil along with this I also managed to glass the controll surfaces on the p47 so now I am going to post those .
Thanks for checking in guys post me some pictures of your build

Day 3. Today will be a short one, I have a ball game to play and a christmas party .
Today I worked on the engine box, I changed the ply here and went with a 5 ply as oposed to the 3 ply they supplied.
Cut out a access hole to the fuel tank I always like to have lots of room to get to fuel tanks,
allso drilled some lightning holes to the bottom and top of the box
also i cut some hardwood triangles to renforce the box, later I will drill 1/8 holes and dowel the whole thing.
Notice the lightning holes are not too far forward, this gives me the flexebility to move the firewall as needed.

Question: do you know the scale of the Stang? Can't find it anywhere on the plans...Looks good here in N.H. USA...and beats shoveling snow. Good Job...I too have Ziroli P-51 plans on my wall...my next project after the 1/4 sopwith pup, thanx, ken

Looks like you have done this a few times before, will follow with interest. always looking for new and better ways of doing things. I to am assembling (notice assemble not build) two composite ARF mustangs. they are the same size as the Zirolli. I am using the First Place 5.8 engine in mine and my buddies plane gets the 3W 75 cc engine. I will be placing the elevator servos in the stabs , with the rudder servo behind the tail wheel retract, driving both the tail wheel and rudder. With the 5.8 I do not think I will have to add weight to the nose. Keep up the good work. By the way, who's muffler do you plan to use or are you thinking scale exhaust? We are using the cockpit supplied by Aero accessories along with all his goodies. Using Sierra gear. Robart drop tanks and BVM drop mechanisms. Do you have a pilot figure picked out yet?
