Having some issues here. Is there a tutorial on some basic ways to build the bombs and/or drop tanks that come with some of the FG models..?

I realize that they may be different depending on the bird but a basic how-to would be great.

I'm working on the bombs/tanks for the Dell P51 and I am having a hell of a time getting the bomb fins to look like the layout on the sheet...also, the bomb tops with all of those pedal cuts...is there an alternate method to doing those...I limped through them ok but I think they could have been better. Much harder than doing a spinner I thought. Thanks.

For the petal types, I like to take a wad of tissue and get it nice and soaked with glue. Roll it up and mold it to the shape you want, and let it dry. Then, put it into the tube of the bomb, so that the curved part is where the nose of the bomb will be. Then, glue up the petals and stick them to the shaped tissue. That's how I did it on my P-82 twin mustang and it worked great!
