Thanks Michael!

 Figuring out of the engine area detail has been intense the last few days. There are a lot of parts at play and all of them work together.

This is the most difficult and detailed part of the kit.

Today I figured it was time to cut the front and rear panels of the exposed engine.

One easy:

One not so easy:

 Cleaned up , holes cleared out and thinning out begins , starting to look a lot better:

It takes a man with balls of steel to cut up a perfectly good kit.  But it's the right thing to do for a build of this level of detail. Bravo!

 

Big cheers from NYC,

Michael

Thank you Michael.

 Oil tank repositioning based on the pic in Gotha! page 16 , # 36. The mount is of my own design and will have 2 inverted 'V' struts added:

Thanks Mass & Michael.

It is a good feeling to be back at it. I worry about losing momentum , parts and forgetting stuff I already figured out. Minimal this time , but I did lose a genny somewhere... that's why I determine stopping points that are easy to pick up from. This kit is best approached as a series of medium sized kits , as  I have done ie:fuse , then the middle wing , etc and approaching by colors helped a lot.

 Smallish detail added in the form of a  generator , taken from the WNW accy sprue , a bracket and a pulley  made and hung in the pod off an engine bearer:
