I do not believe that there are angled panel lines there. The panel in front of the UHT (horizantal stab) is about 18 inches by 18 inches and has a hell of a lot of screws going around the edges. There are no screws going along the angled lines. Since the A-7 was modeled after the F-8 I believe that large panels just forward of the UHT is the stab pac panel, just like it is on the A-7. The two scews in the middle of the line on the bottom are for the round panel, not sure what that panel was for. There should not be a small rectangle panel there, it's suppose to be a big panel like the A-7 had to my knowledge and everything I've seen.

Just my opinion.

Something to offend everyone.

People who disrespect the American flag never had to worry about coming home under one.
