Tamiya´s 1/32 Spitfire Mk IXc Merlin 60 series engine (part 1)

One of my ongoing projects. Tamiya´s 1/32 Spitfire Mk IXc. I want to build it with the Merlin engine quite detailed. This is the first stage of the detailing. I have added some details of the surface elements as well as the couplings for the pipes and wires that will be attached after the painting.
