Right BulkheadThis was a very basic affair and basically consisted of a plain bulkhead cut to size to fit between the ammo stowage and the firewall and detailed with some cabling and bolt details along with some of the donor Skif kits' ammunition. Unless a section will be completely visible on the finished build I will not go overboard on detail/accuracy. I do NOT subscribe to the ‘Because It’s There’ school of thought – life’s too short and there are too many models to be built....... Next up was the:
FirewallInvestigation had revealed this to be a fairly complex structure comprising fuel stowage, ammunition racking and the fighting compartment exhaust fan assembly. Starting with the fuel tank – this was made from layering sheets of 2mm styrene sheet to give me the required thickness, the resultant ‘block’ was sawn and sanded to shape and detailed with a filler and hosing. An ammunition stowage was fashioned from 0.50mm sheet and three more Skif shells filled it. The fan opening was cut into the wall and lined with a thin strip of 0.1 sheet to recreate the coaming. The scratched fan and motor was added and the opening covered with scrap Aber mesh from the bits box. The fan unit was ‘wired’ with 0.3mm rod. Firewall minus the RH side fuel tank and shells, removed for paint.
