  1. Hi guys, thanks for the positive comments, I really appreciate it! On this moment I have done left side of engine. On this side is connected inlet tube of battery ventilation, vacuum tube between daschboard and restriction valve and control rod for propeler governor.
  2. Hi, battery cables are on place plus bowden line from engine head to the tachometer generator. I´m also start work on lower side of air chanel.
  3. Hi, next small step, I did new glass jar which is used in battery ventilation system to absorbing acid fumes from battery box. I also working on main power wires from battery to ground and to the disconnect solenoid. Finally I prepare ventilation inlet from left side of fuselage to the battery box and engine is done! 😉
  4. Thanks Steve! I finished "day of tubes", lower side of engine bay is done. I also made some changes on oil ventilation line, especially connection to the engine heads.
  5. Thank you guys! So, Packard is in frame and now I need connect everything what is possible :-) On the top between oil tank and compressor will be a profile for battery support and finally space under battery will invisible, so there is a pic from this area...
  6. Hi guys, finally, I closed fuselage, it´s big day 😃 Now I´m ready to install Packard´s beauty and lot of tubes and cables from firewall to the engine.
  7. Hi guys, I´m back on the world 😊 I have finished left side of fuselage, finally dry test looks good. In this moment there isn´t throthle lever armature, because it is higher then cocpit cover and must be placed after gluing left side of fuselage. As in right side there are a Barracuda decals. Of course, I managed to break a lot of details, but that's life 😉 .
  8. Hi guys, some progress on left side engine frame. As ussually I use some Eduard PE ( support battery frame, covers lock etc.). On the frame top side is vacuum restrictor on tube from daschboard to engine vacuum pump. On real plane is front part of frame open U profile, but I hope that this solution is ok. Beside tube is rod for propeler adjustment - only upper part now, second will be add after cockpit finishing, because I can easily destroy it now.
  9. Thank you guys! The truth is that one of my next projekts will be F4U-1D on assembly line. There are nice photos from LIFE magazin, I have a Tamyia 1/32 and I´m thinking about composition. But it will be a next time 😉. Now I´m working on radiators section, this is a simple, no a pipes and wires... 😃 Ok, one tube is added, it´s input for cockpit air heating. It´s short tube on first photo.
  10. Hi guys, right side of cockpit is completely done. Work with Barracuda decals was sometime hell, but finally looks good.
  11. Thanks guys! Right side of fuselage is painted on basic colours, waiting for decals and finally wash and oils. On matt electronic boxes are scratches by aluminium and normal HB pencil.
