Got some more going. Slow progress, but progress it is!

I made another fire extinguisher for the rear bulkhead and then mounted it.



Also made some handles for the ammo cases as well as the radio gear.



I've only had to replace a few of them since, as I can't seam to stop jamming my fingers into the radio room whenever I pick it up...

Then it was onto the rear floor. I don't have a pictures of the B model's waist area, so I'm using the pic of a C model. Hopefully there was not much difference.





And then finished up, construction-wise anyway.




Now, I need to mount the guns. The waist and belly guns are mounted in a circular gimble, and I'm going to try and mimic that. Failing that, I'll mount then as the ins say and just try and fake the look. Then it'll be onto the cockpit, by which time hopefully the PE seats will be in...

Model on!
