I've recently bought the HobbyBoss Tu2 and cut open the blanks to expose the interiors, but find myself a little lost as to what to add.  I thought I'd be able to use the ICM kit as a guide, but that is of very little help bar a second seat in the cockpit.  Does anyone have information on just what can be seen in the front and rear.  I'm not looking for finer details, but surely it has a bombsight?  How was it arranged for the second crewman to operate?  Was there no more than a single seat in the rear?

Whilst on the subject, does anyone know of a reasonable source for half a dozen suitable guns?

Thanks.  That's an excellent guide to the pilot's area - it makes much more sense having him offset than the kits' suggestions of a central position.  It would have been better to have seen the 2nd and rear crewmen's positions clearer, but there's probably enough to provide as much detail as I care to put in.
