When they recreated the Bee Bee Z, in as much faithful detail as possible. They noted the pilot tended to get rather woozy. Right in front of his face, in the middle of the instrument panel, was a thing that looked like a radio speaker but was fresh air from outside. And in their faithful replica they had put the air intake tube right behind the engine exhaust. They moved it and the pilot quit feeling woozy. They asked some of the original pilots and crewmen if the pilots got woozy and they said, "Yes, as a matter of fact; they did."
What a good job Geo, I will be waiting for the follow-up.
Interesting information that is generated in this thread. Always the assembly process, images, documents and information; are important for future reference.
Waiting for GB paint to dry. Wheel well inserts need to be added. Note I skipped a step ahead. Wing fillets need to be added first, then lower wing and then two upper wing halves. A test fit of the left fillet shows a very good fit as long as the sprue attachment points have been totally removed. Note also Humbrol colour call outs but colours aren't mention in the instructions
Wing fillets fit like a glove. Some builders had a problem here.
Everyone's problem area. No panel here so easy mudding.
One insert done and gun barrel hollowed out
A test fit of the upper wing halves show gaps at the front as others have mentioned. Two more gap areas to watch for later unless I'm the only one to get lucky, are the landing gear "knuckles" on the wing leading edges and the area that the propeller blades exit the spinner/back plate join
