  1. Hello All, I thought I would pitch in with an MPM Wellington because - it's classic Bomber Command and - I have one in the stash, bought from Hannants London second hand pile several years ago. Here are the parts: It's a curiously unloved kit, with issues (to my knowledge) of: * Undercarriage bay too narrow for undercarriage * Turrets are messed up/mislabelled * Canopies too wide * Lots of others, including "it isn't the Trumpeter kit", which by all accounts is excellent, albeit with its own flaws Here's some sticking together (including separate cylinders!) that hasn't engaged the brain: "Hey I'm a model fighter guy and I've just stuck 30 parts together - is it time for the paint shop?" You can see that the undercarriage strut is too wide for the wheel well. You can also see industrial sanding to the wheel wells to clear the top wing half, and more sanding to thin the trailing edge - it is in itself quite thin but the joining surface rises up a few mm before the edge, preventing the edges from meeting. Pressing on regardless, I took the liberty of assembling the rear turret (checked the number call outs many times). It's too small for the rear but it fits really well at the front: Here's where I got to today: Note that I have drilled out the landing light ports. You can also see that the wheel would never fit in the well when retracted - good job I'm modelling with gear down! Next up will be an interior - I want to represent all the crew positions visible through the windows, but I don't want to go overboard. Thanks for looking, Adrian
