Hi All,

A lot has been done to this since I last posted, sorry for the delays but I've not had time to upload these pics,

So, I've made a new floor for the main cargo hold out of the original plywood floor supplied and instead of the horrible flocking powder I've used a sheet of .5mm aluminium sheet left over from the Lancaster bomber to make a covering to simulate the floor panels. The running tracks for the cargo sleds were simulated with a 3mm flat head screwdriver scored down the panel, the dimples for the ratchet strap loops (not modelled) were made using a 3mm steel rod tapped with a hammer on top of a hard rubber mat.
Image

I then painted all the sections in cockpit green with the center floor panels in black with the running tracks for the cargo sleds in cockpit green too.

I've also made the rows of paratroopers benches that would have been hinged to the cargo hold and dropped down to open the space up for large cargo, these were made out of the supplied seats but without the bases and framework, painted cockpit green and with a strip of plastic to hold them all together. There will also be uprights glued to the front of each seat, these will also be parts from the supplied seats modified and painted green and attached later.
Image

And finally, I've assembled the framework for the tail section. Nothing too complicated here although the two plastic parts for the rudder needed a fair bit of sanding down to fit into the slots properly (not sure if I had a bad example or they're all like this!).
