@Splash. Clean for the camera angle. Pile of shame to the right out of view. :grin:

Good start, I like the tape harness idea it surprising what a difference little things like that do to the final finish.

OK. Cockpit ready for a final tune up. Drybrushing etc. Most of the entire fuselage goes together with the cockpit entering from the bottom. The cockpit as you can see is mounted to the gear bay. Hope it all fits. Stabilizers added to the fuselage halves as it will be one solid color so masking will not really be needed. Air Screw set. I finally used the degree angles on the Humbrol cutting pad.

Coffee cup of my favorite team. The Detroit Tigers. Although a rebuild year, spring training starts in about a week. Time to refresh the contents also. And maybe a biscuit to go with it.

Time to also think about a musical interlude.

In memory of Greg Lake

Excellent work! Even at the right angle, I'd have a hard time getting a clean looking shot of my bench.

So far :twisted:

So far so good. Thank you for covering my back. Tough to get an audience during a weekday. I do have a long distance inquiry. Did the Hurricane IIc have both the long wire antenna and the short ones off the stabilizers. The answer would save me some research time.

So we have the fuselage together. The under wing ready to put in position. Air screw and wheels painted and the radiator painted and assembled. I should let you know that the kit includes the standard and the Volkes filters.

Fresh cuppa Joe and a muffin with peanut butter.

Oh there is bound to be a hiccup somewhere. Forgot to tell you that I drew lines to align the cannons as there are no good attach points on the leading edge of the wing.

I could only find out the two aerials going to the tail planes was the IFF that was later replaced with a small mast arias, sorry I can’t be more help.

I have found a photo online of BE500 LKA showing it had the IFF aerial on the starboard side it entered the fuselage somewhere near just above the centre of the K

Sorry I can’t post the picture I’m using my phone. The location was http://www.agefotostock.com/en/Stock-Im ... V-11951371

I hope that helps
