Some more work. 

The ignition wiring is depicted as a rather frightening photo etch part. I could tell that this was going to be too much work, as well as lacking the 3D look more appropriate to models in this scale. 

Image

I cut off the ignition leads and used the photo etch as a template glued to some thick plastic card and shaped.

Image

I then drilled some holes and glued in some copper wire

Almost completed engine.

I have used the excellent RB Productions Sutton harness. A little tricky to assemble but they look really good. I modified the lap belts as they aren't quite as complicated on the real aircraft  as they are meant to be assembled.

Image

I cut off the kit grip and remade it from some copper wire with very fine copper wire wrapped around it. I also added the two gun buttons.

The almost completed cockpit. I added some instrument wiring from copper wire.

Lovely craftsmanship,
The effort is certainly paying dividends. The wiring harness looks great.

Daniel, I am sold out of the nozzles and instrument panel, with no further batches planned at this stage.

Some more work, appreciate the comments guys.

The kit is missing the floor of the cockpit, which is just the top surface of the wing. This was easy enough to whip up with some plastic card and a riveter tool.

The engine mounts are quite troublesome and weak and didn’t really line up the engine too well in the cowl. I cut them off just short of where the engine sits and have fixed the engine in place once it was lined up, by drilling holes into the tops of the cylinders through the cowling and fixing it in place with 4 brass rods superglued into position. I will trim these down flush with the surface.
