Hi Rob,
Yes - Radu Briznan at 'RB Productions' makes most of his tools by photo-etch.

I've added the control linkage to the top of the twin carburettors, which consist two levers, connecting rod and cable pulley.
Also the connected levers on the top of the attached 'speed controllers;.
I also created the frame mounted throttle bell-crank and the two cross bars on the forward fuselage frames, which are missing from the kit parts,

Mike

Hi all,
The final on-engine control linkage has been added, which is the spark advance (ignition timing) for bottom magnetos.
For now the engine will be put to one side so I can make a start on the cockpit,

Mike, for a minute I thought the top picture was of your model! skyisfalling
That is a fine job. Can’t wait to see the cockpit build. I bet you’ll be adding glass to the dials and painting the needle tips with the fluorescent paint.

Hi all,
The kit supplied fuselage side frames married to the 3D printed fuselage.
This required cutting both, as both have a pilots seat frame and only one can be used of course.
As the join between the two could be a weak area, I chose to fit them together using brass micro-tube.
This gives more rigidity to the join of the fuselage and allows the fitting of the pilots seat frame from the kit (part A26),

Interesting to see a lozenge pattern used behind the pilot seat! I wonder why they did that.

Model looks really nice and I am anxiously awaiting it's completion.

Best Regards

Hi all,
I've started on the cockpit pipework.
The pipe connections under the fuel tank.
Behind the instrument panel is the fuel valve manifold (made of micro-tube) connected to the pilot's four selectors. Two pipes out are for connecting the supply from the main and auxiliary fuel tanks.
From the bottom of the manifold will be the two supply pipes to the engines duel carburetor.
Electrical cables added to the rear faces of the starter magneto and ignition switch.

This is more detailed than the real thing! I just keep on marvelling every time you post new photographs. Stunning work Mike.

Mike I am loving this!! It is getting very crowded in that frame and I bet quite challenging to connect all the lines and cables in such confined space.
Amazing patience you have Sir!

Hi all,
A few more things added:
Fuel lines from the underside of the fuel tank to the fuel gallery behind the instrument panel.
Grease line from the pilot's 'screw down' pump to the engine mounted water pump.
Fuel drain line from the underside of the fuel tank to outside of the fuselage bottom.
Oil line from the oil tank (in the fuel tank) to the engine driven oil pump.

Now it's onto the wiring up the magnetos and adding the throttle and spark advance (ignition timing) controls,

Mike

Mike, just what tools are you using to feed those lines inside the frame. I know you can't get your fingers in there.
Do you have the frame held in a clamp and then use tweezers in both hands?

Best Regards

Hi Rob,
Just two tweezers as the frame is way to fragile to clamp in any way,

Hi all,
Tachometer drive added from gun synchronization mechanism.
The two carburetor fuel feed pipes from the gallery behind the instrument panel,
The two machine gun trigger cables from the control column to the gun synchronization mechanism,
