    Nice start. The boxes were probably the same colour as the bulkhead, but somewhere in one of Guttorm's threads there are pics of the inside of a Heinkel, which might help.
    Pity you couldn't have waited a couple of weeks, and entered it in the BoB GB.

    Coming on nicely. I think that most of those sink holes won't be seen once the fuselage is joined.

    Thanks for the encouragement :)

    @ Airframes you were right only on on each half would have been visiable, i'll view the others as practise :)

    some more work done...

    The fuselage together, then i noticed the cockpit was leaning so out it came and was reset

    [​IMG]

    no trouble getting it in again which i was pleased about

    The Heinkel 111 takes shape :)
