You're welcome Mike, good luck!

 

I replaced the gun barrels with fine brass tubing and paint them, or actually burnished them to the blackish metal shade using AK solution. I prefer this method over the painting, as the paint do not adhere well even to primed metal surface and the painted part could be easily scratched when placing it in situ.

 

Do remember there were landing gear mechanical indicators on top of the wing, which I made of stretched sprue. There was also landing flaps single indicator placed on the port wing. Forget to mention the decal sheet omitted the fuel gauges on the wing, so I sourced them from Mike Grant generic decal sheet.

Using some fine drill bits and the Tamiya magnifier head set, of course, as my eyes are not as good as used to be! 🧐
