I finished wiring the harness.

Then I attached it to the engine case and connected the other ends of the wires. This took about two hours to complete.

Next up are the exhaust pipes on the back.

Thanks Kev! I'm getting better at doing the wiring but drilling all those tiny holes was a real challenge.

Thanks Paul! This build is moving much faster than my last two.

Speaking of which, I should show my F-4 some love before that GB ends.

Yeah, that's where I struggle, too. I was lucky with the Quickboost engine on my Corsair, as it had little dished recesses where the wires attach, and these were enough to hold them without needing to drill any holes.

Thanks Richard!

I'm hardly a machine. I just have a bit more free time at the moment.

That certainly makes it so easier. I actually debated getting the Barracudacast version as it has the same dimples moulded in but decided to just stick with what I have.

I finished up the engine while waiting for an electrical inspection of our reno work.

I then did some more work on the cockpit bits.

It's my neice's birthday tonight so we'll have to see if I can get any more done after the party.
