Airborn 1600 build landing gear and shaping cowls and window block

I cut and shaped the front window blocks, Quite a lot of balsa butchering to be had here.
That window block is massive.
Also the nose cowl blocks on the firewall motor mount is made for most of the models.
Piece of 1/2" balsa here and some 1/16 balsa strips around the edge of the motor mount themselves
to have them blend in with the sheeting of the fuselage and give the motor mount a balsa sheath
all the way around to make the covering adhere better.
Lastly bent up all the landing gears of 5/32 music wire, plan on heat treating all the gear
so that it toughens it up quite a bit and makes it not bend so easy now that the music
wire we get is about as soft as solder.
