Recommended Posts

Tank was located behind the canopy , barrel like, rubber coated.

It's presence pushed the battery towards the front of the aeroplane which required a small squared , boxlike addition on the compartment cover plate behind the pilot. MW-50 filling port is on the right side , visible just above the shoulder of the taller guy on the left.

Canopy suppose to have an additional pressure gauge, as such.

All of the above is visible on this picture ,battery protruding from the sloped backside of the cockpit, MW-50 triangle and filling port

And the most fun part is the fact, that in the chaos of the late production of the G-6 variant, all of this and combination of thereof are possible. :)

Check out this G14 with wide wheel well bulges.  Now this would be a worthy subject...   if we could see the fuselage sides.
