Thanks Marc!! Took much longer than anticipated. At least the most dreaded part of the scratchbuilding process is over. That curtain gave me lots of headaches!!

I’ll bet it did give you headaches !!! But it sure does look good ……………………
Thanks Louis. I always dread doing scratchbuilding on clear parts. At least this time it went well.

Beautiful… want to see it when done.

Work related issues has caused my build to slow down. Interior is nearly done.

Hi guys. I am back with an update on my Beaufighter build that stalled due to work related issues and commissioned builds. I finally got some bench time and started detailing the rear wheel compartment with Evergreen styrene strips and fashioned a bulkhead and drilled some holes to accommodate control cables.

Thanks David. Will do my best to keep up the good work!

I have just looked back though the whole thread – words fail me. The part count must have trebled through the scratch building! Brilliant, brilliant work Morne! I am totally riveted!
Thanks Paul. I appreciate the comment. As this is a tribute build to those brave SAAF pilots that flew the Beaufighter on strike missions over Yugoslavia during WW II, I decided to go all out on this build.

It’s going to be a gem with all that TLC you’re giving it!
Thanks Greg. Most modelers will say it is ludicrous to put all that detail inside if you can’t see it. I always strive to get the detail as close to the real thing as possible and that is what drive me to do this.

This is also related to me During the Second World War, the occupier seized the house which was owned by the grandmother and grandfather of my brother’s wife.
From it they made the main fort in the village, which contained heavy Mitralale nests and was unconquerable.
Inside, there were about 60 men from the village and the surrounding area selected from the quizlin
the forces of domestic traitors were called SS trups “Slowenische Landeswehr”(domobranci).They regularly mistreated and murdered patriots and opponents of the German Reich in a cruel manner.
When it came to the end of the war and Allied airplanes reached our territory, other times with the support of the Balcan air force from the air started, the victory of the Partisan units and the liberation of the Yugoslav territory, Slovenia, were eliminated.in 18.Maj 1945.
The event is published on this site, and I am adding the pictures of the family house before and after the rocket and report.
