Getting the main wing in place and straight is really important. You will need to have the wing in place to properly mount the horizontal stabilizer (elevator) so here is how to go about it.

The P-40 uses two wing screws to secure it so alignmentof these is critical. I started by cutting out the ailerons and trimming them before glueing the wing sections together. Use GWS Cement for this but be sure to spred it evenly on both sides and then wait about 5 minutes before putting them together. Press and hold them tightly making sure the tabs are aligned and the gap at the front and rear are tight and flat. Put a couple of drops of CA in several places and use accelerant to hold the wing tightly together while the GWS Cement cures. This will take about 24 hours. After it is set you can fit the fiberglass rod, servos, ailerons, and landing gear pods. More on that later.
