Very nice scratchbuilding here!

Suggestion for the exhausts: temporarily fix the engine and cowl in place, figure the length of one section of tubing including the angle where it contacts the ring.

Do all the sections to insure they are all identical ( jig ?), glue to the engine and replace the ring to be sure the sections fit in their correct location. Maybe the gluing can be done a few sections on tubing at a time, to keep the stress level down!

Regards,

Alain

Thanks Alain. It's kind of what I have in mind. There's a bend with a very tight radius where the tube meets the rear cylinder. I'm leaning towards annealed copper tubing as I have a number of lengths of appropriate diameter. Soft enough to bend, rigid enough to hold its shape while handling. There's also a joint where two of them meet before heading into the collector ring...

I started building my shelf of doom, but I never finished it.

In the mean time, a little progress - and another item off the checklist!
