Kawanishi H6K "Mavis" by Mark Jahsan WIP#6

WIP#1, WIP#2, WIP#3, WIP#4, WIP#5

This update is about engines and cowls. All parts are kit parts, vac cowls and resin engines.

Assembly line seemed to work best for me, keeping things consistent.

I made tabs top and bottom to hold the cowling to the flaps, and a spacer in center to get the sit of the engine correct.
Engines I painted and washed. Sorry, I don’t have the patience to wire four fourteen cylinder engines!

Still have to do carb scoop, oil cooler, and I have some small straws that will work for the exhaust. They won’t look quite so naked when they’re hiding behind the props!

Also finished the floats & such, looks nice and busy under the wing.
