  1. So, I've been working on the nose section for a bit. I started with the outline of the nose, the framework and the addition of an access hatch in the floor. I haven't created the actual hatch yet. The frame was a bit of a pain due to the curvature, but I think it came out nice. I also opted to use denser lattices, as I think they might be too far apart in the rear section. I don't fancy removing them all and doing it over, so I'll leave the be in the bomb bay and gunner compartment. The front decorated. Because that was the last part for the coarse det
  2. So part three, the rear section. The MB.162 production model had a planned defensive armament of two 20 mm Hispano-Suiza HS.404 cannons in a dorsal an ventral turret, and two 7.5mm MAC 1934 machine guns in the waist. These aren't on the prototype however. There are some small windows where the waist gunner would be. The HS.404 turrets can be seen on the only contemporary drawing of the plane. German captured aircraft showing the waist gunner windows. Also note that the markings were removed afterwards. Contemporary drawing showing the dorsal and ventral turret.
  3. Checked it again, this time my browser was messing it up. Cleared cache and now it's working fine. Thanks for the help everyone!
  4. Well after forgetting to port forward and spending way too much time debugging, I switched over to https, Let's encrypt certificate works and redirects are setup. The images however still aren't accepted. Did I miss anything? Anyone got more idea's? At the time I was setting up https, so the website was offline for a bit, hence the timeout errors. I've tried multiple different pictures, but each has the same result. Reuploading also has no effect.
  5. Yup, with an aluminium underside. A bit back in the thread was stated that there was no information on the wheel bay of the CW-21B, but in this thread https://www.secretprojects.co.uk/threads/curtiss-cw-21-demon.8991 a drawing of it was posted. Again, I can't vouch for it's authenticity, but it would be a weird drawing to create as a fake, and the poster there is as far as I'm aware a good and reliable source. The source of is also posted, but lumped together with different images so I don't know what's from what, with a bunch of them not available on the internet. Might be a lead. Als
  6. I've got this colour photograph lying around which clearly shows it orange. I remember it being an original colour picture, but I'm not 100% sure and I can't find out where I got it from.
  7. Hello, Recently I've decided to also start posted my progress here. Now because I already have my own self hosted WordPress website where I already put my models, I decided to use that for image hosting as I upload my pictures there anyway. Now the weird part. If I paste the URL with domain name it isn't recognized as an image and stays as a link, even with the "insert image from URL" button it doesn't work. The link just turns red. http://emmasplanes.com/wp-content/uploads/box.jpg However if I the site's IP address directly it does work fine:
  8. I generally like going all out with my models, so that includes a bomb bay. Regrettably there is very little information on the internals of this aircraft, and no photo that I could find had a high enough resolution for a discernable bomb bay. Aero Journal notes the plane had 4 "casiers", bomb racks. Now the plane is also stated to have a maximum bomb load of about 3.000-3.600 kg, which would mean that the plane would be severely under maximum capacity if it would only carry 4 500 kg bombs, the heaviest bombs in the French arsenal at the time. Therefore I interpreted this more like 4 bomb bays
  9. Hello everyone, After for lurking a few years, I've decided to my progress with everyone. It might be interesting to some as the MB.162 isn't the most well known aircraft. As far as I can tell I'll even be the first to post about a scale model of this bomber on the internet. I actually stared this model a bit back so there will be enough content for the future. I will however The MB.162 was a French, four engined heavy bomber designed just before WWII. Three prototypes were constructed, of which one was finished and test flown before the German invasion. Af
