Very good work in those corrections, sometimes these things happen. I have been tired for days, but there is no day that I do not do even a couple of cuts. When I take the blade, the fatigue disappears.

I would suggest 'not' pushing it when tired, not too much anyway. Magic build.

Thank you pals
My only time for the model is at late evening, so don't have a lot of choice.
If I feel that I am too tired, I don't engage and it happens rarely, but there also a factor of loose concentration in this hours, so I must be double concetrated.

Many of us are in the same situation Igor, some small space of time in the last hours. In my case, late at night, and when you realize it is already midnight. And at 5am you have to get up for the daily routine.

Half an hour of modeling a day keeps the doctor away!! Although such short period of tizme may seem insignificant considering the vast job at hand, it will definitely keep the momentum going. Nothing’s more detrimental during a build than to restart each time. Better slow progress than no progress!

You’re doing great Igor - regards from my temporary hide-out in Brittany, France,

Erik

So, after a week-long break, I returned to the model, and progress is already visible!

I began to assemble exhaust manifolds. It is also full of small details.



Everything is glued edge to edge at unusual angles.
But the challenge was to assemble the curved tubes.
As a rule, it is possible to form them out of paper or bend them from wire.
I decided to form from paper, because I wanted to experiment a little.
In the future I will have to assemble large exhaust pipes with crazy angles and I had to train on cats
At first I tried to cut out the whole part without reeds and stick it into the tube.
Next, cut the corners and glue bented. Although gluing the tube was easy,
cutting corners was uncomfortable even with the sharpest knife.







I tried the second method: cut out the entire part, including the reeds. Although it was necessary to glue the tube on the reeds - it turned out cleaner and easier.
I assembled in this method the remaining tubes. And of course the exhaust manifolds







Glued them to the blocks. There is also a difference between the units, and the last one is different.

And here is the most interesting part! The blocks are assembled on the basis of the main crankcase and the outlines of the engine have already appeared!
