superb75, no I am not a machinist by trade. I work in office and there I never see any real products made. Just debugging sofware and solving other peoples' virtual problems. So I need modeling hobby to be able to make something real and to hold them in my hands.
I put the batteries (radio and landing gear) in the belly gondola to get them as far forward as possible to get the CG right. The gondola rear hatch is removable. To access the fastening screw I utilized the scale hole for external removable handle.
The MG 81 machine guns were made basically from balsa. Now the cockpit is closed (permanently?). The fuselage is about finished now. Radio installations and some filling and painting is missing.
