Focke-Wulf Fw 190 D-9 | 1/12 th Scale | Part 18 – Center fuselage section

Jig for the center fuselage section. Built from MDF and balsa.

Frames marked on the jig. I also cut some frames
from MDF as templates.

Designing the roof of the luggage compartment.

Making a tool for shaping the panel.

Basic shaping of the panel is done. Some areas had
to be annealed four times.

Dryfitting of the panel.

Right side view. More bending to come.

Sides bent dowwn to allow for mounting
the canopy rails.

Tool for making frame 6.

Upper segment of frame 6 in place.

Some details still missing.

Dry fitting looks OK.

Picture shows the shape to good advantage.
