1/32 F4U-1A Help

Recommended Posts

I goofed putting the wings of my -1A together. I forgot to open the hole in the wing for the stall strip. If anybody has one and can measure the distance from the gun port to the hole I would really appreciate it.

Hold the wing up between you and a bright light and you can usually see where the hole is on the inside.....

RCAFFAN I already tried the light trick. I cant get an angle that will work.  But thanks for the suggestion.

Did you try taping over the gun ports with something like black electrical tape, then shining a bright light into the end of the wing panel from the fold line to try and see where the hole should be?  Or is the wing already a closed box with no opening at the fold, in which case never mind?

No problem

 

The opening itself is slightly over 1/16" wide

 

So....From the edge of the outermost gun barrel measure 9/32"

 

Starting from that point its slightly more than a 1/16" opening.
