It's cold outside. Time to mount a canopy on the O-nine.

The dash board is replaced by a new one at last as are the exhausts. I buyed some Quick-Boost exhausts but I mounted the kit ones sparing the resin items for a more expansive Hasegawa kit.
The front canopy will not be the last word. Found a better one in my spare parts. I will exchange it when I'm back from "Oberschleißheim Air Museum" Model -Fair near Munich in some days.
The new dashboard is showing up a little.

Looks very nice.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.

Like the look of that!
Looks great so far!

Just had to come and have another look!
I made little progress last week because of the modelfair in Münich. Maybe you are interested in some pics of the surroundings where we showed our kits.
The 109 got a replacement canopy from the sparebox with better fit.
By the way I sprayed some exhaust stains and added the wing guns.
May be a litte too much but german engines generally produced heavy stains because of high ingrediences of benzol in the gas.

Looking very nice Michael. Have you any more photos of the 'Storch'
Thanks Michael, I've got a 'Storch" in my stash which I was going to enter in the GB17 build but have run out of time, the P47D took longer than I thought. Any photos that I can get of the plane will help my build, I do have a few I took at the Shuttleworth collection last year but that was before I had bought the kit so didn't take as many as I should've. Is the Storch a fly example like the one at the Shuttleworth Collection? as I notice that there is a drip tray under the engine.
Nice work on that '109!
