Thx, Mark. Added the final items; the break away ignition wires, touched up bolt heads and then some weathering. Then the sensors x 4. I added a rear perforated plate to match the one in the war time films/photos. Really liked this kit. On to a 1/48 scale one next... :D

Sorta’ scratch built a trailer for the Little Boy A-bomb - used tissue paper soaked with diluted white glue for the tarp. Will paint it after it dries...

Thanks!.....now starting my plane nurse, a Cletrac M2. This 1/48 scale kit out of Russia is cool. It’s 3D printed and is very detailed. Will see if my stiff fingers can handle assembling these tiny parts... :) the instructions look like a maintenance manual...cool!

This step 1 and 2, the engine and transmission...
