  • The projectors are installed. The blue stem that enters to the right in the photo passes through the entire passenger compartment to reach the lever fixed to the ground, to the left of the pilot.
  • The rudder is controlled by two cables (one on each side of the plane) that line the lower beams ...
  • The support of the machine gun is placed just to see. I have two machine guns that come from "gaspatch models" I have only to choose which one.... Both are equipped with a gigantic drum. It is not often seen on the ground. It had to greatly diminish the pilot's field of vision.
  • The ailerons are connected to each other by a rigid bar and controlled by cables which come out of the wings by a pulley. One at the top, one at the bottom.

Thank you.Fishing wire for the wing. The others are plastic stretched. The flat ones are evergreen plastic sheets cut into strips.

Interesting that I was aware of the recoil-less small canon but not the aircraft itself! Amazing work, truly! May I ask for more information on how you made your T handle fire extinguisher? Almost every one of my 1/35th military US vehicles is missing its' Pyrene fire extinguisher.

Thank you! T handle fire extinguisher is two pieces of plastic, one stretched, the other flat glued together. The shape of the flat part is made with the scalpel, the ends rounded with the sandpaper (if I remember correctly ). Regards.
