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.

Gun bays.

I have complete right bay with guns  and cables connected firing solenoids and heating plates. PE Parts are Eduard again. 
Some small PE parts isn´t still on position,  will be glued after insertion to the wing 

Guns not glued now, only cables and side walls. Guns and bays will be painted separately, it´s to small for any show 😊

Hi guys,

step by step, slowly to the finish line :-) Not yet, I know... But, I have done both gun bays and glued together with wings. I had to replace  twisted heating cables because I wasn´t  satisfied with this. Parallel cables are better. I made also guns covers from Eduard PE (yes, I used  lot of debonder :-) ).  Wings aren´t glued to the fuselage, only for check and photos.

Hi guys,

on the lower side of engine firewall which is part of wings is fuel strainer and engine drain box. I made it and prepare connection rods for hydraulic and fuel tubes. This units are still visible on the model lower side, but this is maximum which I can able put on this small space.
