Very stupid question. Well, more of a "please tell me that I'm not an idiot" kinda question...
The bottom fuselage piece has a pair of pegs sticking out of it just aft of the main gear. These same pegs are shown in the kit instructions. At no time are they ever shown to be removed. They are also _NOT_ shown on the decal placement 4 view diagrams.
I've never seen these pegs on real a/c, whether in person or in photos. I'm going to PREsume that Academy just left a step outta the instructions somewhere telling you to cut them off.
Can anyone verify this for me?!?!?!
