Staggering!  Love the level of detail.  Feel like I'm looking at the real thing.

The eloquence of description escapes me......if I am to tackle a project, I have so much to live up to.

 

Simply astounding

Hi chaps

So here it is ...(at long last :yahoo:).....Bomb bay all finished!
I had a lot of fiddly things to do starting with all the detail on the bulk head where the hydraulic pump and the Engineers circuit breaker board is....here are some photos.

Here are the hydraulic fluid tanks which is connected to the hydraulic pump further in the cockpit....

Once again I have thoroughly enjoyed my self with this section of the B17G.

 

I also managed to complete it before my trip to UK...which is good news for me as when I return to my office at the beginning of September I will be able to start a fresh on the next section which will be the Radio room!....I think I need this time off from this build as it is the toughest project I have ever done....I really was only going to do the front section....but I guess I got carried away with it all!!.

 

Thank you to you chaps who have been watching this and giving me support and help to get through the build....but I will need you in a few months time to encourage me for the next section...so don't go away!

 

I will post a few photos on RFI a little later

Cheers guys.......I'll be back soon!
