Here are a couple of underside views.  Kit legs were used, but Academy wheels swapped in.  Outriggers were leftover from a VEB Tu-2.







The bomb racks were used as mounting points for the gear legs and worked pretty well.  Nothing was boxed in, or wells made so  it was all done '50's style  ;D  Looks like some touchups are in order  :angry:

How do you lose something the size of the tail in the carpet?
