She's beautiful, Terry. I'm really enjoying your build. Do you know why the off-set the cockpit to the left of the plane?

Peace, brother.

Hi Dennis.
It was to accommodate the Observer/Radar operator in an enclosed darkened cabin to one side of the pilot nicknamed The Coalhole.

The couch went out with the curtains.

Now for filling & painting.
