Guys, I need your help. There is an error with the gun pods mounting. I made a template for marking the holes and it seems that one hole will be in servo area!
I looked around and found some guy with "tank buster". His Stuka has different paint scheme and location of the servo.
Is there anyone with same type of the wing as on my Stuka with cannons?

Yesterday I glued the left wing. The right wing I glued last morning. When I try to fit the wings I found out, the gap between the wing and the central fibreglass part. I try to send it, but without any big success. I put more glued on that space. The result you can see in the picture.

Some progress on the landing gear. Root covers are glued. On the other shots are the legs locks. The same aluminium plates will be on the pants. Each leg is lock by 4 srews. Plywood blocks are also glued in the pants.

Is it normal, that there is a big space between the pants and the wing?

Wing and gun pods are almost done. I will sand the wood cylinders and glue the inner flaps.

I was thinking if should I cut a hole for the exhaust stack in the cowl as I did on my Spitfire. I´m sure it would look better, but it is easier to glue the exasuts into the groove which is prepared in the cowl. I cut 9mm (0.35") of each root and fitted the stubs.

Today I will glue the exhausts on the cowl. The painting job is not done, I will add some weathering when they will be on the cowl.

Exhausts are attached to cowl. Before glueing I sanded the paint from the cowl.

Dry weight without the batteries is 7720 grams (16.9 pounds). I started the weathering. Wings are almost done. Next weekend I will continue on the wing and fuselage.

Cowl is fitted. I wish to find some fast way how to do it. I use to attached RX switches on some hidden place. The only space I found is beside the pilot.

Antenna mast. The shape is not very scale, but the canopy looks better with it. It will removable because of transport. If I glue it, it would be broken after few transports to the airfield.
