Something else I just noticed in the photos, one of the light decals is missing :'(  and it doesn't appear to be in the compartment either   :-\

Only you will know and paint hides a multitude of imperfections :smiley:

Thanks kerick ----

Now it's a general clean-up, some PSR and what not ---

I had a look at the C-130 nose gear wheel bay door brackets, I'll do something similar but those bits are too small for what I plan.

Not much done this last couple of days, I'm hobbling around on crutches after spending yesterday at the hospital having re-constructive surgery on my ankle which was crushed in an accident back in '71.  I've got to keep my leg elevated so I'll spend the time working out how the nose wheel bay door/gravel deflector operating arms will look. I do have the C-130 door arms to get an idea and it'll follow more or less the same way. The gravel deflector on the 737 I went on was actually attached to the wheel axles and turned when the nose gear turned, my set up will be fixed to the fuselage though.

Best of luck for a speedy recovery, Robert!

I can bodge up an airliner or two as placeholders until you're better if it helps.  ;D

I hope you're back on your feet soon.
