Very interesting build.
Fred, pls, which colour did you use for the interior?
Owing to the current financial difficulties, the light at the end of the tunnel will be turned off until further notice.

That's Vallejo Golden Olive acrylic (70857).

Wings are now glued into place.

Thanks. It helps. I am in doubt about which colour use for WW2 british  aircraft interior.

It's probably too yellow to be accurate.  But I love it.  I think it looks great.

I'm tempted by Clear Prop's 1/72 Gloster Pioneer but it's price of $50 is putting me off.

It's together enough to prime.  I've added a single gun offset to starboard with a corresponding underside bulge.

PSR. 
Much as I hate to do it I filled the engraved detail on the outer wings so they marched the rest of the build.
Sanding has revealed some sink marks and the need for work on the wing and stab roots.

IMO it looks much better with longer wings.  I don't know how they ever got off the ground with those stubby little flappers the original had.

Of COURSE it does Fred!  :banghead:
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage

...and I'm not a closeted 'Take That' fan, I'm a REAL fan! :)

More PSR.

This thing has more popped seams than a patchwork marquee.  Everytime I shove a stick up it in order to hold it while I paint another one lets go.  I blame incompatibility between the capitalist running dog glue and the people's socialist plastic.
I have also managed to dislodge the nose weight so it slides up and down the fuselage.  Luckilly I strung all the individual fishing weights on a piece of wire so they all slide together.  But it's still annoying.

Some t.v. archaeologist will discover this in a 1,000 years time and declare that it's obviously " a baby's rattle"  :angel:

Fascinating!  Shame about the rattler. I have a couple like that and it is pretty annoying at times. "chickle chickle " or "clunk clack."

I don't mind a rattle but this is a slide.  I will be injecting some PVA in to the fuselage at some point in an attempt to stop this.

PSR finished and I put on a coat of white in preparation for the yellow in the Suez stripes...

...and then remembered I haven't attached the slipper tanks yet.

D'oh!
