Description:
The Flite Test FT P-38 Lightning Electric Airplane Kit is one of the most advanced Speed Build Kits you can build. The finished model offers a level of scale detail that has never been seen before on a Flite Test aircraft. Once in the air, the P-38 carries graceful lines, tracks true, and is a walk in the park for intermediate to advanced pilots.

Dan, on part 5, there are 2 green alignment marks that are very close to each other. Should this only be one mark, and if so, which one? One is below the black line, and one is above it.
EDIT: There are also 2 marks on part 4. I assume these are copied/mirrored parts.
EDIT 2: There is no front mark on these parts, for the tail boom alignment.

They were there in the original laser files I got from Flite Test, so I left them in. I did not see any reference or mention of them in the build video. Perhaps @Splinter189 can tell us what they're for.
