Thank you friends for your words, means a lot to me !

In the meantime, I made some progress, the wheel bays are poor on this kit, so I had a think a lot what to do to make it a bit better. First I made the whole new '' floor '', the next trouble was the canvas, so I took a deep breathe and try something new, made some canvas from Milliput, don't know yet is it good or not, first I will sand it a bit and then apply a surfacer too see what am I done ( this is still the raw condition without the sanding ) , so we will see is the kit going in to the trash can ( hope not ) or to continue.....

You could cement real canvas there, some extra fine, you would get faster and better results

Nice work mate.
For the use of miliput, there is a tip: you put miliput where needed then with a Q-tip humidified with water you can work on it to diminue the thickness and have less sanding to do...

Extract from original old photo show fabric or maybe even leather, so smooth surface. So there was no need for any fabric imitation. Maybe this wire on rim... but, you say this is relaxing build?

Yes, you are right, but I did find a photo on the net, from a book, of the original bird and it is "heavy " canvas in the wheel bay, so I think both are right..... And Yes, a relaxing project...... Well it started like that but you know me....... Update of the conopy, playing with miliput again
