This is my most recent mod on the "Mustang"! 75 gal. Drop Tanks & 500 LB. Bombs





I've decided to add a set of 75 gal. Drop Tanks with operational release Pylons. Already having 10 servos in the "Mustang" I wasn't interested in running a pull cable to another servo for in-air drops. Instead I went with a static set-up so I could still release them manually if I wanted to.


UP-DATE 7/25/2010: I managed to get the Bombs done this weekend! These come as exploding units, but because I am committed to the static mount on this plane, I decided to make them one piece.
NOTE: I used Krylon Camouflage Olive #4293 as opposed to the Model Master Olive Drab. There's not an appreciable difference in color, and getting 8 oz. more for the same price was a "no brainer!"

During the process of waiting for glue and paint to dry I decided to fire up the Lexmark and make some decals. In the process of making a couple for the bombs, I made up a Fueling decal for the Drop Tanks also.
