Progress Report- Dry fitting

I have used ordinary green masking tape which I painted gloss black to frame the canopies.

I am glad I fought the urge of glueing the wings to the fuselage. It’s much easier to handle the P-61.

Glueing the rear canopy did not pose any problem except for the small side windows that I should have glued before joining the fuselage a few weeks ago.

Live and learn they say…

I will have to be careful to glue the front canopy minimising the gap. All touch-ups will come later.

Everything will be glued on the Black Widow including the top turret, the wheels, and the propellers to prevent any breakage.

Progress should be at a minimum tomorrow because the weatherperson is calling for 15 to 25 cm of snow in most parts of Quebec.
