Fuselage sheeting is almost done. The pictures with the cowl are not very old and there arent any changes since I took them. Tried to make smooth edge betwwen the sheeting on the nose and the FG cowl. I would like to put the EL servo in the radio hatch behind the cockpit. We will see, if that is good idea. In the pictures is old design of canopy frame. Last year I listed the two pieces one for sliding canopy.
Last months Im thinking to use this fuselage as a master for molds and make a FG one.

My friend in UK also works on this Spitfire. He already purchased some of my items for his project. So some pictures from UK.

Works on fibreglass stabilizer fairings. I hope, that the FG fairings would save some weight on tail. And made a central part of wings for the other fairings.

The fairings on Spitfire are really elegant and typical. But very complicate the project. They are one of the reason why Im thinking to make FG fuselage and use the my one as a master.

Here are more picture of the other 3D designes. I know, that gunsight is already available, but I decided to make new one, which would be more scale. I would like to make full cockpit kit with side panel, but at first I must done the fuselage.

Fuel tank filler cap. I wanted to purchase one from David Tilbury but after 5 days I didnt receive any answer from him. I expected, better communication with him. So I decided to make it myself.

The most difficult parts of the cockpit are done. The rest of them will be pretty easy. The throttle quadrant wont come so detailed you can see in the pictures. The base part will be probably solid.
