Does the K4 have two over flow tubes at the spots indicated by the red arrows?

One for the Fuel and the other for the MW-50.

Or do the both share an over flow tube. The kit piece suggests two but I cannot seem to find any pictures to support this.

 

Thanks for any help

Awesome! Thanks for the input.

I have continued the process of scribing and test fitting.

 

I filled the underbelly hatch with CA (due to the sanding and fitting) and now cannot find the correct shape template for scribing :BANGHEAD2:

I'm going to have to come up with a custom job.

Here is a shot of my Tail wheel area.

Good work mate!

In situations like this (which is more often than not), I fashion my own scribing templates from styrene sheet. For larger hatches and panels, the commercial templates almost never have exactly what you need. I use them to help make the shape I want on the styrene sheet (tutorial).

Ok here is my first attempt at a home made template. It is a bit smaller width wise than what was there originally. I'll give it a day and look at it agian and decide if i like it. :deadhorse:

moving onto the storage compartment. Here is my MDC/Eduard high breed. I still need to add seat belt anchors and the de-icing unit.

 

Thanks

I've decided I didn't like the rivets/screws on the panel I scribed. They seem to large. So I have removed them and will go a little smaller I think.

I also have removed the MDC resin piece by the pilots compartment and went with the RB Productions Erla Kit. I thought I would give it a go...I love the detail and how well it is designed...unfortunately my skill level with photoetched parts is not very good. I will still be using some of the kit though.

Here I am using the kit canopy and scratch building some interior details. I pre-painted with RLM66 and used testors clear cement a little at a time held in place with with some poster tac.

Again let me say how nice both the MDC and RB Productions aftermarket kits are they are amazing works. I will be ordering a new Erla kit to have another shot at it for my next 109.

 

Thanks All

Good work. I'm liking this alot.

 

I offer this from experience: Toward the front of the canopy your interior framing will sit below the molded on exterior framing because of the plastics' thickness. You may want to check that out.

Thanks Mark. I have been reading your K4 build along with Radu's to help me along, and when ever I get a little discouraged I go on over to take a look at Loic's Do-335. A truely amazing build.

 

Thanks again for everyones comments

I generally dont install the pilots in the aircraft, but when I do i use paper for seat belts... after sanding off the molded in ones... then I wet the seatbelts with future... and they lay down flush neatly like fabric would
