Si, as always, your models are astonishing in their complexity and detail!

How did you attach the rods to the bell housings of the engines? Our are they simply placed there and the glue is on the hull?

Nice job and I still love your photography skills.

Keep going!

thanks guys - sorry for the late reply
Steve, the brass rods are just filed flat and glued against the surfaces with a tiny drop of CA.
I've made a start on the other side and it mirrors (mostly) the other.
I ended up replacing the center pipes (you know - the 4 each side ones?) with brass rod and it looks so much better. I'll shoot some snaps hopefully soon once I've done more worth showing  ;D

Si
