B-25 Mitchell "TONDELAYO": The Wing mods.

Once again I had to get in there and change out all that fiberglass with Carbon Fiber.

First I cut to length the two .394 CF rods to replace the fiberglass wing spars.
Tip: I found that if I tapered the tips of the CF rods, they will slide into those wing clamps much better and with less friction.

Once I got the two spars cut and tapered, I proceeded to remove the flat fiberglass spar and replace it with .325 x .125 CF using GG as the bonding glue. Once the glue had dried I filled the seams with Squadron putty, sanded and re-painted the wings with a mix of MM Azure blue and white to match the blue underside of the wings and nacelles.
