You need to log into the OneDrive website rather than your pc’s file manager. Then select one of your pictures (it will show a tick) and click on embed. It’s easy after that. 

Can’t find ‘embed’

 Have you selected more than one photo? You have to do them one at a time.

It helps me be selective about which pictures I post!

I have selected only one.

It shows a tick, so what do I look for now?

 

 

Left click on the picture and a menu appears with embed on it. Theres also an embed button on the top of the screen toolbar.

click the embed button of your choice and a sidebar opens

 

Select picture size.

 

Do NOT select 'include html tags' as this makes it post a link not a picture.

 

Copy the url code from the box and paste it into BM

Is it missing the two struts(shock absorbers) holding the door? I see no parts or references to them.

If you mean the upper leg fairing doors (the trapezoidal ones) then yes.  Funnily enough @avro683 were looking at XM594’s yesterday and, to be perfectly honest, it appears to.be a relatively easy job to add your own.  I know we expect the kit manufacturers to do this for us these days but sometimes these things fail the bean counters’ cost/benefit calculations.

 

Incidentally they’re not in the old kit either......

Probably missed in the scan.

Funny how all the detail you can’t see is present. 

Part present in the old kit, so I have four spare.

Rather crude though. Probably scratch build better ones.

  No, the access door.

I hadn’t noticed that omission.

It's at Newark Air Museum, you can get right around it and up close underneath. It's supposed to be having some new paintwork done at some point soon iirc

 

Work has already started Adam.

The doors are there, they need to be fitted before the undercarriage legs. What’s missing are the rods connecting the doors to the legs. There’s one either side of each leg.

The door.  The thing the crew climb in.

Got you! Neither kit supplies retraction jacks for the crew access door, which is odd as they are rather substantial. Unfortunately when @stever219 and I were there yesterday the crew access door was shut so I couldn’t take any pictures. The museum are hoping to start aircraft cockpit tours soon.

Fortunately easy to make, but from the photographs I have found I cannot determine the attachment points inside the entry.
