Many thanks Gents, your all too kind.

After fiddling for a couple of days I finally plucked up the courage to start the ignition leads and using for the first time this braided line. This is the smallest line I could lay my hands on at 0.4mm and feel it has served it's purpose quite well although I would have liked it to be a little neater and thinner. I would like to know what your thoughts are.

Here we have the front 9 cylinders with the ignition leads and exhausts fitted.

I now have to fit the back 9 with the exhausts (currently dry fitted) in order to complete the remaining 18 ignition leads.

This is the engine front facing (again dry fitted).

Radial engine aircraft always caught my eye. Builds like these highlight the little odds and ends that make new plastic look like old functioning machinery. The best part is, not all the wonderful fiddly bits are hidden after this model is completed.
