- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Another coat of topside grey today.

Stock (1/144) undercarriage will be too short as they will put the intakes too close to the ground.  Having failed to grout out longer bays before I put it altogether I shall be rummaging in my bag of undercarriages and creating something pseudo telescopic.

All you need is a hole big enough for the undercarriage leg and a small door the same size as the hole. You only then need to mark out where the other undercarriage doors are on the underside and say then only open to the the undercarriage in or out of the undercarriage bays  ;D

Excellent thinking Gondor.  That will work perfectly.  I just have to ensure I scribe accurately.
Thank you.

Use a card cut-out of the shape you want to scribe, flip it over for the second side, nice and simple  :thumbsup:

I stuck to straight lines and used Dymo tape as a guide.
Thanks again for the suggestion.

Camo paint and underside look ready for some clear now.

Thanks Mr P.

I think i've finally got enough weight into it.  I had to fill the fronts of the nacelles and then drill into the nose gear bay and poke heavy glue into the void behind the pilots seat.
