Packs/Magazines 31,32,33,34 - mainly lower wing assemblies and mounting the earlier completed nose-engine-prop assembly to it. I really like this kit...and the magazine articles are cool...
Mag 31 was the first lower wing assembly.

It has hinged and lift out panels near the rounded

Hi Steveone three one :) - the black and sky coloured outer wing skins are plastic - all of the internals are - just the steel reforcement ribs added earlier are a different material...
