    Hi Ron and thanks for your comments.

    That Porsche was a stunning bild mate, it really was amazing attention to detail so glad you can appreciate the royal pain in the a**e it is getting some of this stuff done!

    I have now got the engine to about 95% complete with just a few tiny additions and some tidying up to sort out plus the primer and eventual painting!

    The pics below highlight the increase in size of the cover on the mounting frame and you can also see how I have improved the fan intake and added a back plate to the cowl plus all the various hoses etc:-

    Yep, that engine is dialed in. The coiled copper and fittings, etc really add the touch. Nothin but detail, nothin but detail,......and there you have it! this is looking like another one for the books Dave!


    Cheers, Ski.

    Hi Dave, oh the joys of scratching eh. I have a huge stock of wires, cables, hoses and the like left over from the Porsche mate, let me know if you need anything. Got a lot of very small heat shrink as well. Feel free to ask.

    Cheers

    Ron, that is a very kind offer, many thanks, I'll doubt I'll doubt I will need them but may call upon you at some point!

    Chris thanks for your comments and interest.

    Ok so a very good weekend with a new cockpit manufactured out of the old one, both sides are now done and the test fitting turned out perfectly:-

    Ok so I have now completed the interior cockpit and primed her up. The Cannons are also now done with a tad of cleaning up. The pics below show how much more detail has been added (it was bloomin difficult!) and I have test fitted it all together just need to sort out the cleaning etc before another coat of primer.

    Amazing job. Not my subject of interest, but am amazed at the detail and planning that has gone into this project. You must have a Me109 engine in your garage!!:D
