Bit of hs chipping on seat

Used non blooming CA glue on the windscreen which was actually a decent fit

And my one concession to scratching

the alignment of the guns was helped by leaving the panels off so I could insert the barrels afterwards, but the fit of the panels themselves was poor

 

my attempts to fix them were equally poor and I wished I had done better

Drove past the site of the Airfield this morning.

 

There is a housing estate now on that hill in the background


it’s not that far from me but thankfully still fields around here

Almost there with the gear now

I have to add the two struts from the outer gear door to the main oleo; I snippet these off as the fit was impossible otherwise

and it’s difficult to see but I had to sand down the stub on the oleo at the top of the leg (ie bottom of picture) so that the outer gear door would sit in the slot / opening in the wing

 

Note the stub does does not match up with the recess in the gear door - not even close

 

i wonder if I am the only one who has had this problem?

 

still, I have now glued everything and it seems to ‘look’ right
