Hi,
I will use those 2 kits and perform Italian one for sure. Second will be Belgian.

For couple of days I am trying to adjust&alter the kit proposed by Eduard into sth more like Hanriotís replica. I have done crating just to be properly visible once assembled, did the intake pipes, drilled cowling, hybrid Eduardís & Small Stuff engine from spares etc.

I've done two of these, too. It's a lovely kit, one of Eduard's best.

I like your build and photograph method Krzysztof.
This is an unusual build, let alone a combo aiming for 2 different airforces. Bravo!

I agree --really nice work. This is how I like to build them too-- two at a time in different markings! But we really need one in 1/32 scale!

Appreciated for warm welcome!

At the pilots back, where fuel intake was located I have added the alu scarf clearly visible on pics available.

Hello,
For time being I have prepared the shape for the base and did imitations of stitching. According to Windsock it starts just behind the inspection panel so contrary to what Eduard presented.

Hi,
The engine is the hybrid being done from Eduardís part and Small Stuff leftovers
For the engine assembly I had to do some inner cowling thinning but have not reached the engine running. It barely moves.
According to photos available the Vickers machine gun was relocated to the centerline of the fuselage in both cases i.e Belgian & Italian. The general idea was to improve pilots access to the gun during the flight

Looking good. I like the hammered aluminum affect on your cowling.
