Airfix 1/72 Whirlwind - fuselage and guns

Fuselage is together, and am adding the canopy perforated frames..
It should make a nice edge for the vac canopy to sit against, as well as adding a little detail.

Got the exhausts built, a half section of plastic tube, bend slightly, and then scraped for the narrow end.

Scratch built some replacement canon barrels, as well you can see the kit ones. Hypodermic needle barrels, with flattened copper wire as the recoil(?) spring, and very thin solenoid copper wire as the muzzle.

Keep Fill'n Sanding..
