Robert, as I am working on the Pfalz D.IIIa I ask myself all the time, “how does he do it?!” Yes Sir, it is amazing.

Hi all,
Control cable for the hand operated throttle added.
Lead wire 0.2 mm diameter, from hand throttle on the control column, down and under the floor, up side frames and across the throttle quadrant.
Then down the other side, under the floor and back up to the hand throttle.

Mike is that lead wire spot glued in several locations to the frame and what type of glue did you have to use with it?

Yes it is - CA adhesive as normal styrene cement won't touch anything other than the kits parts.
CA for lead or copper wire, acrylic 3D printed parts, brass or Nickel-Silver micro-tube.

Hi all,
Generator lead and seat connector fitted.
Generators were not standard fit, but were installed to some aircraft to power heated flying suits later in WW1 and if carried, wireless transmitters.
Made from 0.4 mm diameter Nickel-Silver micro-tube and 0.148 mm diameter match line.

Hi Rob,
The cockpit and engine are more or less done.
I'll need to add the synchronization drives from the mechanism to the guns but only when I get to fit them.
Now I'm starting on the radiator and coolant pipes then ALL I have left is to completely rig the fuselage, paint and rig the wings, scratch make the undercarriage fairing and axle assembly then build it all including rudder, fin, tail plane and elevator then rig all of the flight controls.
So not much eek
