Those motors really fill up the space nicely. Generally do have to trim up the Vector engines, they are to scale, cowls are not.

Nice fix Warren . I tried searching the internet for some idea of what a view inside the cowl but could not turn up anything.
The Russians had some different ideas for their airplanes like shutters to control the cooling :thumbsup

Anyhow, they still have different ideas now days.

An alternative thought on masking :coolio , I just purchased one of these after reading a post from another builder

Gave it a quick try and it gave me a good impression . Just paint it on with a small brush . Seems more workable than anything I have tried so far.

Cheers, Christian B)

Thanks Christian!

The best images I could find for the cowl were on the Seawings site, not much there though!

i do have the Microscale version of liquid mask and I do use that from time to time!

Been busy with family this past week over Christmas but I did get a bit done on this:

added some internal supports for the new resin engines

Drilled out the air vents and scoops

drilled out the landing lights and filled a hole on the starboard wing that wasn't in any ref pics I looked at

And just have a bit of sanding to complete and the wings should be ready!
