    I am creating a Luftwaffe diorama and I have a figure that is loading rounds partially laying down. I know it on the wing but where specifically? Thanks.

    Armament varied but essentially the two weapons in the cowling and the two in the wing roots were fed from boxes in the fuselage. Access to the boxes was via various hinged access panels in the front of the fuselage and to the wing root weapons via hinged panels,at the wing root,above the weapons.
    The outer wing armament,if fitted,was rearmed from the underside of the wing.
