Guilty as charged.
Don't know, really, there is so much to do! The goal would be a replica as accurate as possible, as detailed as possible.

The plan is to build it closed up. If feasible the various hatches will be made workable.

The framing for the cooling units was built sturdy so it could support the engine deck:

Yeah, but that would ruin its shape, a shape unlike any tank before and after it.

The skeleton for the MB517 is a DB 605 that was taken from a 1:24th scale BF 109G kit (it is 2 CENTIMETERS too short). Size and angle of the cylinder banks were corrected.
