Thanks Kacper. Just to give some size perspective here she is posed with your A-24 and one of my little Ryans.

Kacper said it, impressive !! It's magnificent as it looks, perfect from every angle. You have magical hands for this Garry. All your work in this monster is great. And the design of NOBI, as we are accustomed, impeccable.

Apologies for seeming lack of progress on this model. Unexpected work and other commitments together with the fact that I totally underestimated the required time and effort on a big project like this has meant not being able to be where I would like to be.
Decided a 'production line' approach rather than completing each engine pod one at a time would be best. Each engine pair is a well designed model on it's own and requires time and careful alignment because it's easy to end up with a twist. Nobi provides accurate formers and little centering alignment marks on the parts which truly are a great help.
I decided the pylons needed some join tabs otherwise the builder will be trying to edge join parts which simply won't be anywhere near strong enough. The arrows show the tabs I used. I also put little card spreader wedges inside the pylons to 'fatten' them and help them follow the highlighted mounting areas on the wing leading edges.
I previously completed one engine pod and have progressed well on the other three.

I learned doing tabs and additional parts on old Maly Modelarz kits.Bad quality paper often had to be permanently encouraged to stay in needed shape with basic parts like this.This knowledge came in very handy years later when I was doing sheet metal air ducts in industrial applications.
