Fw-190 engine mount ready to finish

Just a short note and a couple of pictures.

I finally have the mount put together to the point where I can start test fitting the engine. The engine looks to be a bit down in front so next steps are to work a bit on straightening it up.

The top center solder joint failed when I was working at test fitting. So I aligned everything (again) and used some 5 minute epoxy to put it together. It might be a bit too long and that is what is pointing the engine down.

Afterwards aligning the engine I need to finish the mount and start working on the space between the engine and the bulkhead. There’s room for lots of stuff in there!
