Very important step : to do the link between the two wings.

I use a carbon tube.

in middle i use resin + fiber of carbon : 40g. - (1.41 oz)

but after you will see that I respect the real P61 with the two angles. 4 and 2 after engines

Nice work. I am a big fan of the P-61.
I still enjoy flying my 1m EPP sratchbuild model.
I have designed a 3D printed nacelle and 4 bladed prop:

EDIT: aesthetics are so-so because this model was intended for R/C combat games.

Nice work!
I really like that you are accurately modelling the dihedral. It is so important to get that right and capture the "look" of a plane.
