I have done quite a bit of work on the oleo's and U/C parts .
The model could now stand on it's own feet er wheels.
I now have to figure out the best way to make the links between the upper and lower oleo tubes.

I am waiting for some bushes for the undercarriage so I have made a start on the instrument panel.

A little more progress on the instrument panel.
Now have to start on detail of instruments, radio and all the knobs and switches on the panel.

For the first time we put the model on to its wheels.Checks showed that the mains were a little too long so they were shortened by approx 1/2"

Now that the oleo links are complete we could not wait to do a complete assembly and take a few more pictures.
The only things now left to make are the fairings for the main u/c legs, and i really must give the crew heads and clothes.

The U/C leg fairings are now complete and fitted. The airframe is now ready for painting as soon as we get paint of the correct colours.
After painting there remains much of the internal details yet to complete.
