This really does have some nice detail. Will many of those EMs even be visible once the fuselage is together? Always pleased to see an update on this lady.

Thank you all, guys
I am sorry for the dearth of updates in the last few days, but I have been exceptionally busy with work and seasonal family commitments. However, after wasting an entire afternoon at Elland Road, I've just spent a couple of hours seeking some comfort with my plastic and glue .
Tim, I am sure a significant proprotion of the EMs will not be visible, the only problem is that at this stage, I'm not sure which ones!
The first thing to mention is that etched parts 45 & 46 (which replace plastic parts 207 & 208 - the rudder pedals) are not pre-painted, so I have formed and added these.
The second thing to mention is that the illustration of completed stage 3 in the instructions does not show the orientation for fitting to part 195 (the flight yoke). I missed this, and it seems I installed stage 3 upside down, so I had to take great care fitting part 195 and allow time for it to set.
Those darned ejector pin marks are even present on small parts like 195 !

Hi Sean, the office is comming on well in spite of those EP marks, looks as though they might make it a bit of a marathon if ther'e even on parts like 195

Great job, sir, and I always admire another ordered mind at work. That offset control column just screams the film 'The Battle of Britain' at me. You're selling this kit to me, though I know that if I got it I wouldn't be able to match your quality work.

seem to have worked out posting issues now - will add what I can
To be going on with:
KG54 - "Totenkopf" were formed in May 1939 and chose the Death's Head emblem simply because it was a common military thing at he time, nothing to do with the SS or anything like that.
Good work so far Sean btw - looking forward to seeing the gallons of RLM 02/70/71/65 paint go on

Welcome back chaps - I hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year!!
Steve, I'm hoping I've got most of the EP marks sorted now...
Filled and sanded:
I'm debating doing more work on them, but I think that the really prominent ones are now invisible and the ones that there is a slight sign of well concealed within the fuselage.
Tim, you don't know until you try, buddy! Although it's big, it's not too complex (so far!). Having said that, in places the instructions could be clearer. They are better than Dragon's but not as good as Tamiya's (whose are?! )
Paul, good to see you finally posting buddy! I forgot those refs you showed me, thicko that I am Any more background info?
I found it tricky to be certain how part 341 fitted to 214, and it didn't seem like a strong bond, so I used a short piece of plastic rod to act as a brace. Again, some surfaces have had their detail shaved off in preparation for pre-painted etch surfaces.
