Tip Tow 1/48th Scale Model

Brass tube to support Thunderjet models

Square brass tube is fitted inside F-84D wing to provide "mount" for tip coupling. Squadron Green putty over sheet stock fills the hole left when the weapons pylon was removed. The strip of sheet styrene on the inside of the gear fairings is to strengthen the glue joint and to help keep the fairings flush with the wing surface.
