Thanks :)) Yes, they are real heroes, fly alone deep inside enemy terrototy, in many cases without armed airplane, this is real daring missions.

Yes, a lonely duty to fly PR! My father remembered the high-flying recon airplanes on (from both sides) flying above his unit in Africa. In fact it was one of his strongest memories of airplanes!

Work on wing is next and whyt I do is dril holes in central section of bottom wing. Reason for that is that I will use drop tank, original machine use it

Some sanding and grinding of wing bottom is on demand, to manage wings to fit to fuselage

Oh, clearance for resin parts?

The belly tank will be a good addition, not often is the "slipper" tank seen on Spit models.
