Continued assembly of the aftermarket engines and mounted all on the wings….have to step away from this for a bit as the monthly packages for the Spitfire and Iron Man showed up :D

Added the bomb load to the bomb bay…3 x 500lb GP and 1 x incendiary canister. That all they had room for due to the bomb bay mounted auxiliary fuel tank.

Nearly finished, just some panel lines to tidy up, some seams to sort a bit more. I finished the bomb bay and doors. I shortened and modified the incendiary canister to make it somewhat more accurate. I will add the antennas and pitot tube…
Thinking on building an old Revell CV-8 Hornet in her Tokyo raider colours next. :D
