Work on struts can be complicated sometimes, your look good. Interesting to see it with gear spats removed ;)

You mentioned the struts, No.1, and on this model the fuselage struts fit quite nicely with regard to alignment. A lot of filler is needed to close up the gaps where they fasten to the fuselage, however. My technique on this was to glue the struts in place and align them to the wing. After the glue was fully cured I started filling and sanding until satisfied.

Today the cowling was finished and theatre markings applied:

Time for some painting, first underside, then top. While that paint was drying the bomb pylons were modified and detailed a little, then some extras put on each landing gear strut including brakes and brake hoses. After the extras were added, the bombs (Airfix provided these) pylons, propeller and struts received the appropriate colors:

Here's the final product on this one, depicting an airplane serving in the East in 1943, not long after returning to the front after being refurbished. These little machines were faithful to their design and served far longer than anyone thought they would!

Thanks, friends!

There's still some small things to do on this before it goes onto the display shelf, some more weathering and little things.

a bit too much wash on the under surfaces for my taste but still a nice work
