Looking good. I wish I could help you with the parts but good luck. Hope some here or on ARC will help you out. What are you using for reference as there is a lot of detail being added. The only book I know of is Daco B-1B but I don’t think it has anything on the early jets.

HI !
Glad you like the project … I 'm using the AEROFAX / DETAIL IN SCALE / various issue of KOKKUFAN ,AIR POWER / AIR COMBAT magazine , also the AERO BOOK on the B-1 … all those as lots of image of the early A versions , I also cruise the net on a weekly base to find new images , youl,le be surprise what you can find on the net but it chew up lots of time !
Hope too !
