The Unicraft kit is a "conversion kit" without tailplanes nor wings, so I plan to have the P-51B's wings as biplane link between the fuselages, and the P-51B's tailplanes will become (monoplane) external micro-wings, the tails will have no horizontal stabilizers. This is to please a little further JMNs requiring a credible way ;D

As you can see: I had no room enough for a twin-plane... just for a wheeled twin-bed. :blink:
