That's not even all of it. I've quite a few bits from the Ta152H and G-6/AS builds as well as few more Henri Daehne props laying about. Plus two D-13 conversion sets on their way from Europe. Most of the stuff was bought individually in preparation for future builds but I also got a good assortment from buying opened kits from modelers that included a bunch aftermarket items.

Nothing wrong with having a healthy stash of parts John!

I like your stash of kits - that Tempest will be worth seeing!

The Tempest is an interesting kit but it is, unfortunately, not on the foreseeable schedule at the moment.

Got the last bits onto the Aires cockpit tub including the HGW harnesses.

The sidewalls are glued into place. Once that is done, the cockpit details get swallowed up into what is probably one of the most claustrophobic cockpits of any WW2 fighter plane.

Really not much room in there but it looks great
March as one, Don't look back
Odin's sons... Attack!
Unleash hell! Do not repent! Warfare grants us no lament
Let your weapons slash and tear This is no place for fear
Hold the lines! Move as one! In unity our victory's won
Our shields will form a mighty wall
United we shall never fall

Cockpit is done so I can start preparing the fuselage for closure. A few things to take care of first. One of them is to modify the exhaust installation, which are designed to be placed from the inside. I don't like that so I've trimmed the bases of the Barracuda resin exhausts so that they will slip into the sides of the fuselage AFTER painting. And I've blocked off the openings in the fuselage from the back to give the exhausts a backing to glue them on to.
Image

I had to make a slight adjustment to accommodate the front of the AMUR Reaver cowling.
Image

Checking to see how it looks with the entire cowling in place.... a-ok!
Image
Image

Some other things to attend to are opening up holes in the wing bottom to accommodate the future ammo chutes and installing the mounting tube for the tail landing gear. Which brings me to the subject of the Revell parts numbering system. It is so ridiculously random that I believe that they must use a random number generator to do it. The partner to part 30 is 31 and since those numbers are sequential, Revell was forced to put it on another sprue.
Image

Another small item to address are the circular discs molded onto the fabric control surfaces. These are supposed to be weep holes but in reality, they are subtle enough to be unnoticed. So I scraped these down to almost gone.

The fuselage has been riveted.

A look at the holes cut into the wing bottom for the ammo chutes.

Here's what the Quickboost guns look like mounted in the cowling.

The kit wheels look pretty good even compared to the Barracuda resin wheels.
