Harbor freight P-51 Mustang converted to P-82 twin Mustang

I have been flying the Harbor Freight P-51 Mustang for a couple years now and had always thought that this kit would make an excellent candidate for a kit bashed P-82/F-82 twin Mustang. I finally decided to do this build when I received some EPO foam used as packing material. I started buy web searching the P-82 in order to get a good 3 view, when I figured out the wing loading and realized that the wing for the P-51 that I was using for this application was flawed, it had way more wing loading than the outside wings of the P-82. Due to the famous shape of the P-51's LE, there was more wing area on the straight LE of the P-82. I had to make up for this shortcoming by adding wing area to the center section, the horizontal stabilizer area would fallow suit. Having figured out the proper load it was on to the build. I cut the wing in half right at the center of the servo pocket then I did a rough carving of the center section from the EPO foam block.
