I miss the days when the instructions used to list the name of every
really fed my curiosity as a kid. Luckily, WNW are getting better in
The instructions for 32060 Bristol Fighter F2.b (Post War) identify that
the "petrol filter" (pages 7 and 15). The feed line comes through the
the right side of the a/c (though I've seen other photos that show it coming
through on the left) and then runs from the pump forward, probably to a
fold. The best view of a fuel line entering a carburetor is second from
right on page 14. There, looking just above the exhaust manifold, you
a right-angle brass fitting with a black metal line running to it.
If you ever need to rebuild one, here's a reference to the carburetor:

Have been studying photos in the WNW instructions and other photos from various sources, and I admit I can’t find the fuel lines to the engine. There are, I assume, four carburetors—two at the front and two at the back…where do the fuel lines connect and how do they get to the carbs from the fuel tank?
