I assembled the tail gear bay but didn't take any photos of it before I glued the fuselage halves together.

The exhaust pipes were also painted using the paint mix in the instructions.

Here are some close ups of the finished cockpit installed in the fuselage.

From the underside where you can just make out the shoulder buckle hanging down past the seat.

Thanks Ernie! I've always been more the bubbletop fan but the Birdcage needs to be added to the collection.

Thanks Danny. The engine on your build is fantastic. I might try wiring it on my next build. This one is more of a stress break while I work on my Snipe.
