The kits trop filter has only PE support struts, but my dad is no fan of PE so he used a Hasegawa filter.

The aircraft had the recess filled, so did my dad with filler.

Used a piece of metal pipe for the antenna wire inlet.

The original aircraft was a G-2/R-2, to say a foto recon bird equipped with a R50/30 camera in the belly. As seen on pics, the camera was removed by the Brits/Americans and it seems that the hole was closed with a metal panel. My dad simulates that simply with a piece of masking tape.
