Yeah you won't see any of that so I wouldn't worry about it. Don't sweat the small stuff bro.

Thanks, Mike! I promise not to sweat or swear. (I have air conditioning and ice cream, so I’m chilled.) My thoughts and prayers are with all of Texas right now, for sure.

Image

I am modeling this without the canopy; so I need to at least address what is inside the opening I cut. Perhaps the radio? Check this out.

Image

Fug 16ZY Transmitter-Receiver? Item 101 on that badass cutaway. If it is the radio, it may have been removed already. Whatever it is would be directly behind the pilot seat here.

Image

Huh! Maybe “Baggage compartment!” I thought it was stowage initially. At least now I have the shape of the interior.

Image

Still I find this confusing.

I wouldn't even bother with the interior of the hatch. You see how it angles away from the opening like a funnel? I can almost guarantee that, once painted in RLM 66, you will not be able to discern anything at all from that small opening. And you'll have much busier areas that will draw one's focus to like the: (a) the cockpit, (b) engine and (c) inboard wing guns.

Thanks so much, John! Forgive my tardy reply. What you wrote makes a lot of sense.
