Most detailed ever, I don't know... I don't like dealing with absolutes. All that matters is that this build is fun!

I must admit that I wasn't satisfied at all with the three part panel that held the exhaust ducting for the generator. What you see depicted in my last posts reflects the sorry state of the Kubinka vehicle. The exhaust ducting should be parallel and schematics clearly show another circuit for the warm air, which I completely ignored.
With Stora22's help (thank you!) I set out to make a more accurate render of the area:

I totally agree. Is not worth loosing sleep over things 99% of people will not notice. As long as you are happy with your work is all that matters.

Keep up the great work!

True and true, David.

I reworked the engine compartment. My earlier attempt, with the smaller cooling unit compartment was based on the supposition that in its final configuration, Typ 205/2 had both the fuel tanks enlarged. Careful study of photographic evidence has shown that only the left tank was enlarged.

Back to the original configuration! The right fuel tank was also lengthened:



The weld marks clearly show an enlarged compartment for the air filters, plus the short fuel tank ends right after the filler cap, so:

There were several failed attempts at building the fuel tanks that involved styrene and Milliput, a couple of attempts at hammering sheet aluminum into shape and making a cast resin piece before I sculpted some rough shapes out of insulation material. These, after sanding and detailing, will become the fuel tanks:

The left fuel tank is done, minus primer and paint. The strap and fuel lines will be added when mounted on the hull.
