Focke-Wulf Fw 190 D-9 | 1/12 th Scale | Part Six – Attaching center fuselage to fuel tank chamber

Fuel tank chamber and center fuselage section were
glued together using 5 min epoxy.

Bottom view of the subassemblies shows the sharp edges
of the fuel tank chamber in contrast to the rounded cross sections
of the center fuselage to advantage.

The engine mounting frame (right) was also added.
It aligns with the canopy deck in a straight line.

The fuselage extension plug is made of two
plywood frames and a balsa core.
Total width 41.5 mm
