Resin bits

Parts not used. I'd like to know more about these as it would be handy in case I want to convert another 109

I was wondering about all the resin bits but these don't show up until page 11. I thought about this briefly but will use them on the second kit

BTW... I can't see the attachemnt in #2. Please re-upload it ...
 
Other than the bombs and racks, the unused parts appear to reflect early to late developments of the 109G. Wheels, supercharger intakes, fin/rudders all changed from the G-4 to G-10 and the sprues appear to include some of the parts for those.
 
Thanks Andy. Started on the innards, figuring out what can be glued before painting. Removed and cleaned up the fuselage.....no locating holes or pins
 
You are correct Andy. I don't know why it bugs me so much but I mean....seriously...the only place to put the sprue gate was on the rivet lines. Anyhoo....darkness...

Of course, after I had finished I noticed that the innards will fit in front of the "L" shaped ledge, not behind it. Helluva masking job though. Attaching the P.E. to the sidewalls at the moment
 
It's new for me and kinda sorta worked Andy. Mostly based on an oil pin wash but at the moment, though I do have some oil paint, I'm not set up for it yet so I used these...

Its pretty subtle as it was only a test but if you squint you can just make out some on the floor, seat back and fuselage

Forgot to post these. Used my lady stick to apply the P.E. and it worked very well. Stays on the stick until the part comes in contact with the CA and then transfers slicker than snail snot. I use Lepage's Ultra Gel as it gives a bit of work time. Double sided tape to prevent the pings

Almost done with the P.E. and then I can close it up
