Dear fellow Britmodellers, may I present my very first Trumpeter aircraft kit! I was pleasantly surprised by its good engineering and fit. Since I'm no expert on the 'Wimpy' I can not comment about scale accuracy; however, it does look like a Wellington to my eyes! The only letdown of the kit are the decals, their colors are totally off. The code letters and serial were replaced by (very old, but still usable) decals from the Matchbox kit. Wing roundels and fin flash from (almost equally old) Techmod decals. Painted with Gunze acrylics, representing a machine of RAF 150.Squadron, operating from Regina airbase in Italy, autumn 1944. The Trumpeter kit offers a bomb bay with basic details and a cover, but no individual doors. Since I wanted to display the bomb bay open, I purchased a CMK resin set, designed for the MPM kit. This does not fit the Trumpeter kit, being considerably shorter. In the end, I only used the resin doors, some of which were badly warped. I tried to straighten them out with heat, but it only worked to a certain degree. Wheels are resin items from Aires/Quickboost. The bomb load was assembled from 250lb resin bombs by CMK.
