Update 8

Good morning Trimotor fans. Today we have for your review the following:

yes, the #1 engine is really starting to take shape. Quite honestly, it looks as though a large amount of progress has taken place, simply due to the addition of the oil tank and oil cooler. The truth is that those were relatively simple tasks, whereas hunting down enough wires

to make the engine run takes somewhat longer. Speaking of hunting wires down, the pilot's switch panel is all wired up and checked out.

Now back to the oil tank:

These spacers are larger than they should be, causing the oil tank to impinge on the aft portion of the nacelle structure. I'll have it fitting properly before the day is done, after which, I'll be on to the next task.
