Thank you Bob.
I love making small details. All models look much better with them.

Well, when I dont have time to work on fuselage in workshop I spend time with 3D designs. Voltage regulator, gunsight and compass are done. Now Im working on new instrument panel. All parts will be available when I make molds and make first resin cast. Like usually all my parts.

Oleo legs 3D desing is almost done. I was thinking about HK 50cc Spitfire legs, but Im not sure about their material and probably I would have to modify them.

First two pairs of oleo legs are done and ready to use. I put some printed details. As my friend says: "Small details make big differences"
They will be good for static.

It took a little longer, but the canopy frame is done. I put the last dummy bolt few minutes ago.

I must share pictures of friends BT Spitfire. He used some our accessories for his project, but the pilot seat is one of the best Ive seen. Thats not a kit, just only hand made by Andy.

The front half of the canopy frame is still in the mold, but the rear part is done. In the pictures you can see the result. I was suprised, that all dummy screw heads are clear.

Whole canopy frame is done. Both parts are detailed. I got some more pictures of real Spitfire, so that is right I put the dummy screw heads. That frame will work with JP Warbirds canopy rails set

Voltage regulator, control trim horns and rearview mirror works with H9 30cc Spitfire. John put some more JP Warbirds accessories on his Spitfire, nice job!
