  3. Taken a couple of goes to get it right but I think the tail light bracket is done.

  4. I’m sure the previous owner thought he was being careful by wrapping the petcock barbs with tape, but duct tape? While on the subject, I know this is heresy amongst the DIY crowd, but how many uses does that crap really have? Even for its intended use, heating and cooling ducts, it sucks. Adhesive backed aluminum tape is far superior. It’s messy, sticks to itself but not that well to what you want it to. I’ve had the same roll for about 4 years and there’s still plenty left. I always find a better solution than duct tape. There I said it. Duct tape sucks. I feel better now.

  6. Made a little exhaust hanger. Nothing fancy, but light and functional. Tempted to do the classic lightening holes but think rigidity trumps looks and the .098 grams of weight savings.

    P38 demonstrating they could fly on one engine.

    The cool thing is that the engines counter-rotated against each other, with right engine’s torque effect on the air frame was leveraged to keep the left wing up, and vice-versa, to help stabilize the aircraft if one of the engines were to be damaged and inoperable in battle.

    I had a pic just like this one on my wall growling up (under another of a P-51 Mustang). My father told me the only problem with the P-38 that ejecting pilot would on occasion be cut in half by the tail. Never looked at the pic the same again.
