It will pull okay. The pipes in my spitty mold are about the same depth and I never had any problems with those getting stuck.

There is a good pic of them here that droydx posted in the sandd's Me-109 thread.

EDIT: BTW, I think Matin was right about moving them a little higher. Also, you don't have the panel lines and other details right now. They will look even better on the finished plane.

This is exactly what I had in mind even though I could not express it at the time (I think I was driving )

Considering the fact that this not an exact copy of anything and that there will not be many humps and bumps and panel lines above the stack (where they normally would be) I though a higher positioning of the stack would be more pleasing.

Just to clarify, have they already been moved in the second set of pics? I assumed they had and those shots were showing how they looked in the new position. They look good there, IMO. IOW, I wouldn't go any higher from where they are those second shots.

Dutch, a bit of black primer on the resin might help as will a side view level with the fuse in determining placement. Since the plane is small relatively speaking, your camera angles are higher than typical warbird and other shots. At least that's what I'm thinking. Once the fuse is painted and panel lined and a few bulges here or there (either in the mold) or given them using paint techniques of shading, I think it might look different.
Grey primer on the fuse and black on the exhaust stubs would give a better idea of the final product, no?
How do you prep your basswood plug for the mold?
Do you primer and fill or epoxy coat or poly the plug?

Looking good!

Both Ta152 and Fw190 look sinister, more so than the 109...
The grey and black schemes lend more psychologically to that I think.

Gee Slopeiron, you could have at least made it a haiku...!!

It is going to look like an FW190 in side profile in the canopy and frontal view of the canopy and the tail/fuse from wing back...
ME109 like spinner and nose

It will be sleek and if you put a rudder on it then the thinned canopy will make it more effective I am guessing, less turbulence or blanking of the tail by a thicker section...
Side area of big bubble canopies like on the Bearcat and Spitfire later marks had increased tail sizes to improve handling and rudder effectiveness in landing and high angle of attack. The bubble canopy while improving visibility for the pilot, a very good thing in combat situations, had unwanted side effects.

Looks good.
