cant wit for mine to arrive,I've also placed an order for the VDM '110 series of books.

 

Thanks for checking by Shawn, I am using the Squadron Signal G-4 walk around book which is pretty good, also using Brett Green's "building the Bf-110" book.

Loads of great reference material also supplied on the AIMS instruction CD.

 

Regards. Andy

First things first today was to put correct my goof on the oxygen regulator position as pointed out by Dan  :mental: Moved the regulator mounting to the correct position and cleaned up my mess!

Then concentrated on getting the rest of the rear office together prior to  adding any extra detail work, first up the lower MG 151 mount.

Followed by cleaning up and getting the very delicate radio/ rear operator seat in to position as I figured this would be a far safer proposition than having it floating around while i paint it and posibly damaging it!

Not sure if you can see but the auxiary battery box needs building up as it sits to low ( John does point this out in his instructions) which I used some thick plastic card for but it is worth double checking your resources for final positioning.

And a quick dry fit of the rear office so far.

time to get any extra wiring, junction boxes added now but most of all I am struck with how cramped the rear office of the G-4 was, must have been absolute hell on earth!

 

Very happy with how this is going so far and really enjoying the build.

 

Regards. Andy

That cockpit is looking great!  I imagine the bordfunker had to be a contortionist to reload those those cannons as well as man the machine gun.

Looking awesome Andy!  Im really digging this. Making me salivate to get my own copy. Of course for awhile, it will reside in the stash, with current difficult projects, but Ill be coming back to this thread when I do for sure.

Hi Andy - looking good there - make sure the MG 151s in the belly are angled inwards as per my drawings otherwise the ammo belts you make will not join the weapons - thanks for posting your work

Wonder if the Bordfunker got double pay for his efforts Gaz!

It is Rick, both the PE and resin are spot on as well. So far so good and the fit is very nice.
