I'm a bit confused about the number of forward firing guns too.  Specifications always seem to list one, drawings show only one, the museum example I'm using for photo references show cutouts for the breeches on both sides, and one of the kits in Bud's thread shows what looks like ammo boxes on both sides.  Beats me, maybe somebody with the Windsock Datafile will look it up and see if there's a definitive answer?

I've managed to get most of the major internal details done.  There are a lot more brackets and fittings that could be added but I'm just going to add a PE throttle and add the wood "shelf" behind the gunner's cockpit.  I might also take a shot at the gunner's sling seat, we'll see.

Dan, are you building the short fuselage Halberstadt version or the long fuselage Roland variant?  If the former, one gun.  If the latter, C9400/18 to C9499/18 also one gun, C8050/18 to C8199/18, two guns.
Super work on the interior, by the way.
Cheers,
Bud

I was going to build the shorter Halberstadt built version but since I've built it with gun mounting locations on both sides I might be better going with a later Roland built machine.  I understand the fuselage on those was 40 cm longer, but do you know where that 40 cm goes? I'm hoping it's at the very tail since I have to rework that area anyway due to molding issues.

Thanks for that VERY helpful info!

Yep.  That's where it is, Dan.  In 1/72 scale, it would barely be noticeable, so you shouldn't have to do much in the way of modification.

i figured there had to be some logic to the 1 gun/2 gun thing. so late roland built after 8050/18 had the 2 forward guns.. you are doing a really nice job on the kit. you are making me want to start one of my vacs.

Today's goal was to get the cockpit painted and get the fuselage halves glued together, I'm happy to say "mission accomplished."

"mission accomplished."

I'll say!  And in very fine style!

That looks excellent, I particularly like the throttle quadrant and linkage! Very fine work.
