Forgot to show how I approached the detailing of the top portion of the radiator. I just used Spacklin Compound. This is in its rough shape just after I pulled off the masking tape while it was still wet.

The bottom of the radiator cover has been glued to the underside of the fuselage and top has been painted. Only to add just a few more accessories and this will be finished and I'll move onto the tail feathers.

All the louvers are glued in place along with the small "adjusting" rod and, if you look closely, can see a very fine wire wrapped around the wheel. Sorry about not having the louvers adjustable. It actually occurred to me to try making them adjustable, but reality hit me. I had to keep in mind, "This is only a small stick-n-tissue model." I'm currently having some problems with my ol' laptap. I've taken additional pictures, but can't seem to get them resized into my folder for future submission to this site. I'll keep trying. I sincerely thank everyone for their inputs. I've posted my response in my last post on the 6th. You guys are great.

However, when viewed from an angle, the louvers are very prominent. I could've arranged the louvers to cant downward to visually bring them out. Since this model will be given to my daughter, I have no idea where she'll be displaying it. So, decided a neutral position would be best.

Finished painting and glued in place the left side. I purposely took this picture straight-on to show how the louvers seemingly disappeared.

Not glued yet. Will paint first.

Each louver was placed evenly within the space provided by the previous ones.

In effort to maintain even distribution of the louvers, I simply filled in the spaces from the middle outwiard

The frame for the cooling louvers was made in one continuous loop, bent at right angles and joined at the upper right corner with just a dab of super glue.

Just to let everyone know: I live in Reno, Nevada. I'll be attending the air races. If anyone is interested, I'll take some pictures of the event as well as restored classic and antique aircraft on display in competition for the Smithsonian Award.
