Landing gear inserts in prepared plywood slots. The slot width had to be trimmed a little on both the builds so far as the gear bend was too wide for the prepared slots but no problem. It goes in very tight but I glued it with thin CA after it was in place. BD Cake was great... saving it until my BD March 1st! Couldn't find a stain or paint to match so mixed some Testers Enamel and got a pretty close match. Match looks exact to the eye but camera says different (see LG struts)! But I didn't paint the wing struts and they also look all different shades to the camera!
