Ummmmmm I have the kit and know it is basically a barrel with wings, but,

I think that at this point, the build is made of more of the sprues from other kits used as filler more than it is actual Czech Model plastic...but it's nearing the end...

I have to say....I've never seen a kit more resistant to glue than this one. The gear legs are final on but regular cement didn't work and even CA was a challenge...





Anyone know what color the lights on the top towards the wing tips were?

You are probably going to find my post obtuse but you should rethink your landing gear installation.

The paint job looks good though.

I suspect the pilots would have preferred the wider stance gear scheme. I don't have any definitive information on the upper wing lights but artwork I've seen shows them the same color as the wingtip lights, red to port and green to starboard.

Fixing those Luis ;)

Been a bit of a bear because the plastic just doesn't want to.adhere with glue or CA....so I added some thin styrene strip to the inside edges of both parts and I figure the glue will.adhere those strips together at least....

Pics to follow in a few days...going to be a busy couple days getting my wife another truck as her current ones frame is apparently rotting out.
