ok. in keeping with the idea of making a big mess grinding resin and plastic, I've relocated the (diesel truck) tail pipes out the backs of the nacelles. This involved drilling big jeezly holes in my nicely sanded and smooth wings so I could fit aluminum pipe to simulate exhaust outlets. While working there I figured no sense leaving the original radial engine exhaust pipe relief's on the nacelle's so I fitted so .005" sheet plastic over them to resemble riveted on scab patches. The mold is setting up on the first prop blade master, so I can carry on with the build while that side project is in progress.
Here's the wings with those big holes drilled and one side with the new cover fitted

Having a hard time telling if you sanded off the turbos or not :skipper

Thanks for looking and encouragement
Yes Christian, the super chargers are gone! I filled from inside with super glue and talc. Then filled and sanded from the outside till they were gone. But as with the panel lines (that I will be re scribing) the silver plastic remembers the image that was moulded in and it looks like is still there. Good for panel line reinstatement but hard to tell if I’ve rescribed them or not because I can see them but it might just be the image of what used to be there... know what I mean?
I’ll prime with acrylic, if lines disappear in the primer I can Windex it off and try again

To be truly believable removing all the weight of the radial engines and periphery would require a lengthening of the fuselage in front of the wing or a serious relocation of the c/g via weight re-distribution...

Heavier armament would do the trick too!

Well, I guess it's been a while since I updated my build. So, most of the paint is on, even the drummer I march to is giving me odd looks now.
I went with a "my version of air superiority gray" I call cloudy sky. As well, I've come up with my own version of "false canopy" I call false Mustang (they need a bit of detail painting and such...possibly invasion stripes?) But, after all it is another world.
