    i'll be leaning heavilly on Ozhawks Heavy Hitters GB thread of a 93 Sqdn MkXXI Beaufighter for this build
    progress so far.

    i forgot to take any pictures before i closed up the fuselage, suffice to say i used all the kit parts but i did cut the bulkhead out as MkXXI's didnt have it (thanks Peter)
