Next, here is the port wheel well roof, which will be mated with the bottom of the wing. Once the two are together there is some more piping and wiring that will be done to finish things up. The starboard wing is almost done too, I'll post that when it is finished.

 

The colour of the wells was a bit of a hard decision. There is photo evidence that some of the post-war USAF and National Guard Mustangs had their wheel wells painted Interior Green, including the clamshell doors. The photos I've seen of RCAF wheel wells also shows a darker colour that can't be attributed to shadows or darkness in there. So I went with a green. A couple of the photos of this aircraft, RCAF 9253, also suggest that the clamshell doors were green, but I can't make myself do it lol.

Finally the Airscale instrument panel, 95% finished. I just have to add a couple of indicator lights, and knobs. It's surprisingly heavy too.
