I can smell the oil from that engine. It must have been very loud in the cockpit when those machine guns were fired.

Really looking good john , did you have any problems putting the engine on to the fuselage ?

I had to cut a section of the exhaust tube to get mine on

I did read a review and that person had the same problem

Seeing this is making me want to get another one :smiling3:

Thank you all for your kind comments, as for the engine Alan i had no problums fitting it in the fuselage.

My biggest problum was fitting the underside of the fuselage, i had to cut off the locating pins as they did not line up with the pins on the cockpit section whitch i had already put in the fuselage, but this was my own fault as i built the floats with the underside section attached to them, i thought it would make life simpler.

Rather than trying to line up the two halfs of the fuselage plus the cockpit assembly and the underside float section all in one go.

To a degree this did work, but i had to use clamps till the glue had set.

I had the same problem with the underside I'd forgotten about that I rectified it in the same way

The engine must have been my fault, i must have put the exhaust pipes in the wrong guide holes
