F-111  Step #7 Fit the Wings

Prev Step #6   Next Step #8
Attach the un-covered wings to the center plate. Temporary pin the stab to the fuse. Adjust so that the wings fold back to the stab evenly.

Now with the wings folded back locate the position of the launch pins. Note that the launch pins will hold the wing back for launch so you want a snug fit. Mark the position of the hole for the launch pin. The launch pin should not interfere with either the bottom plate or the front of the stab, trim to fit. Drill glue hole for the launch pin so that it catches a bit of the ply wing doubler. Once fit, glue with epoxy or CA.

You can add the rubber band hooks and finish the wings by covering with printed tissue.

  Position Launch Pin to hold the wing back.
