Finished Routing Fuel Lines (Mating Wings)
1.0 Hours

Tonight, I tried again with the fuel lines. The trick, as it turned out, is to be put the bends in place with the tubing bender and then fit the entire piece into place by bending some wide curves into it (and then removing those curves once the piece is in place).

Outside the fuselage, it's a straight shot to the fuel tank. I will put fittings on and flare these ends after the wings are off.

Then I did the same on the right side. I managed to screw up a whole section of tubing by bending it in the wrong place, though. I'll have to order some more for the line from the selector valve to the firewall.
