Superb workmanship, Jan. It’s a pity that you chose to close the main gear central doors. Your wheel wells with the Edouard AM in nothing short of outstanding!

One small thing though. The order of the recognition lights on your model is not correct. The correct order (leading to trailing edge) should be red-green-amber.

Kind regards,
Quang

The main doors should be closed. On newer aircraft it took longer for the hydraulic pressure to bleed down and the doors sag.
When you see Mustangs these days, some bleed down quickly, others sag slowly.
If this was soon after an engine ground run, that look is 100% correct.
Agreed it would be nice to see the workmanship, though. :)

Thank you guys for kind words! I really apreciate it  :)

Agree with you Ernie  :) generally I like the look of Mustangs with main doors closed
