F-111  Step #6 Assemble Fuselage and Center Plates

Prev Step #5   Next Step #7

If using printed tissue, cover the center plates and fuselage. If painting, now may be an easier time to paint and detail the center plates and fuselage.  Remove tissue where the bottom plates glues to the fuselage. Use scrap balsa/magnets/etc. to jig the center plate section square to the fuselage. It may be easier to turn everything upside down, block the center plate dihedral. Then jig the fuselage upside down on top of the center plates. Use a slow drying glue (epoxy) to allow you time to check the position.

Once dry add canopy and finish with tissue or paint.
