Still redesigning the ribs and spars, that now won't be spars but horizontal bulkheads.
I included the dorsal gunner placement (S8 part) and you can see that, even when everything changes, everything is the same.
About the gunners and cockpit, the model is designed in a way that if somebody wants to place acetate "glasses" and internals, it can be done easily.

Interesting airplane. Looking forward to seeing it finished!

Thank you for sharing, and everyone for the great comments.

Thanks, Mike!
Well, the internal reinforcements are advancing, just 4 parts (yellow spots) to convert!
And the skin of the tail is advancing, too. I hope to end, and print, the internals this weekend.
Then the rest of the fuselage skin will come, then the lower wing, upper wing, engines, floats and last the details like inter-wing struts and foot-rails

Very interesting model - I build the plastic model a few years ago
Can't wait to see the end product on this paper model -

Great work. That is a lot of formers to design. You're doing a fantastic job.

Thanks, Gary, hrogers, gomidefilho, Butelczynski
After printing the internals, I found some details, but all of them are fixable and that's why you do tests.
Anyways, the first try is to the left of the picture. Two important changes: The middle gunner nest made a change of the middle dorsal shape, just above of the fuselage join. And there are two "I" parts, just in the middle of the picture, that will serve as a guide/support of the lower wings. I'll probably make another "I" part, to reinforce more the join.
If you have experience in the assembly of paper models, you'll see that a lot of the parts are over-engineered. That's it because I build my models to last at least 30 years.
So... I expect to finish the internals by the weekend, and after that, I'll do the fuselage skin... with a surprise!

Mate, you are doing this aircraft justice with your design/build. Marvelous.
