Thanks mate.

 

Plenty more decals to go on the underside.

Underside done! Just a handful of decals remaining on gear bay doors then it's time for a gloss coat.

Decals done!!! I'll inspect everything after I've had some sleep then make any touch ups. After that it's on to a clear coat before panel  liners and weathering.

Into the home stretch! Now to let it all cure for 24 hrs before a coat of varnish. THEN I can assemble gear and pylons. I haven't glossed or weathered the rear wheels yet until I test fit them and make any final adjustments so that will be the final step!

So anyone doing this kit or one of the many Hasegawa variations. Make sure you add that little linkage BEFORE putting in the front gear strut! Presumably glue it to the strut first and put them in as one assembly. Getting it in afterwards is possible but it's an absolute pain! Took me ages.
