    Thanks a lot man!

    An update after putting in another couple of hours this weekend which do not show up much in the renders unfortunately =/
    Managed to actually find a factory drawing for the tube-/airframe of this thing and after modelling the frame, I found out that my eye-balling was a bit off in certain areas, mainly the wing-struts near the windshield and the height of the area where the fabric fuselage meets the metal cover panel. It turned out my border was slightly too high.

    All of this is corrected now and the fuselage airframe is in place.

    Coming together nicely Joep! The more detail you add, the more realistic it becomes

    There is still a fair bit left to do on the cockpit and tail assembly. After that it's landing gear and then it's pretty much finished

    Thanks Kevin!

    Did some work over the weekend, made the seat and the leather padding around the cockpits but I'm not happy enough with it to show an update. Still figuring out how stuff goes together.

    I also optimised the render settings themselves to get rid of the noise inside the fuselage.

    Started fleshing out both cockpits as well as working on the airframe etc. In the second image there is some odd lightbleed behind the wooden supports on the inside and I could not yet figure out where it was coming from. It's not intersecting or doing anything weird and that is the only area where it shows up, so the investigation continues.

    I've also optimised the render settings so I get less noise in the dark/shadows.

    More research into the cockpit

    Throttle quadrant complete including the linkage between both cockpits. Control columns and all linkages completed as well (was funny figuring out how it worked) and the mounting for the leather pads protecting the pilots from injury on the side of the cockpit also modelled.

    Next up, some flooring stuff to get right and then it's time for either instrument panel or other cockpit fittings, I'll decide on that next weekend
