MORE BOMB BAY WIRES AND CABLES
I think I am close to finished with the starboard side wiring and cabling of the bomb bay.
The loose ends of the white wires aft will have to be fit into a couple of holes I drilled into the after bulkhead.
As for the control cables in the ceiling, I show them warts and all.
They proved to be a real pain to install. I used two diameters of wire, because that is what appears in the real thing, but getting them to align was a fiddly nightmare. See above.
I take some consolation from the fact that they do not align perfectly in the real thing
But, I will probably continue poking around with a #11 blade to "clean them up" a bit and I think I'm going to paint them a darker hue. At this point they are close to being "good enough," especially given their limited visibility in the model, and it is time to move on. Just a bit more messing with these, I hope!
I have to do a double-check to see if anything else needs to be added to the rear bulkhead. If not, it's almost time to do THIS:
though before I do I will install something to represent the ball screw actuators
at least in the starboard bulkheads fore and aft. Since the transmissions for these actuators rest under the catwalk fore and aft I will save the actual connecting rods for later, when the catwalk is installed. That's going to prove tricky.
