After the dowels are dried they are cut off and sanded flush!Then triangular stock is glued on the inside of the box.the box is made removable to access the fuel tank behind it! then it is held in place on the fusalage ready to mount it!

i then modified the box to allow me to attach this nifty little item. i got it from phil clark in england "Fighter Aces, warbirds and Accessories". it allows you to position the Walbro carburetor rearward and you dont have to cut another nasty hole on the side of the cowling.

the next few pics have some comments about my installation from Phil! I had to also cut away some cowling to provide for room and cooling for the head! I do plan on taking some artistic licence and reshape some what of a scaled cowling.

The shaving cream can has to be emptied of the bladder inside.Then i re-enforced the seam and sealed the little pressure hole. I then started to modify the stock muffler's width

Now on to the wheels! I wanted to make a scale looking wheel hub cap, so I made a master from wood and then vacuum formed from plastic a hub cap. then I mounted onto the wheel by tapping the wheel with a 2-56 tap. but before mounting it I glued the hub cap to another sheet of plastic and trimmed it to fit in the wheel.Then I used nylon washers as spacers to bring out the wheel far enough off the axle.
