  2. btw you have a superb job on basic construction this is not a shake and bake kit
  3. the trump model does give you seperate flaps. they were usually raised by the ground crew when on the ground although I have seen mix and match. I think for a repainted in the field ac the area under the flaps is probably camo color at least it is on the nasm ac. I think they would research their ac carefully as well

  7. not to be critical of a beautiful realized model but that ac did not have the antenna wire.
