This is some amazing work, Mal! I still can't figure out how you made those springs. I might have to copy them though, if I can't figure out how to have closed cowl flaps on my own build.

Hi Buddy

Absolutely an incredible start, as the detailing is simply so spot on, it's ridiculous! Talk about pulling one out of left field! :thumbsup:

I'll be glued to the monitor for this build and with you all the way

Keep 'em coming

Peter
