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   :-\

No one will notice one mm difference. Only if you tell them! Looking awesome so far, canít wait to see the paint!

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.

I've abandoned the 'gavel deflector' idea for the front wheel bay door, the geometry needed for the arms doesn't work with the wheel bay on the model. I'll go back to the A400 style of doors instead.

Thanks Greg, I'm going to try to get this done inside the GB time, but at the moment the ankle is swelling up big time (I was told it might do this) and I have to elevate my leg. Which makes it kinda hard to make models ---  ::)

This has not progressed very much at all these last few days, my mind is in a bit of a fog most of the time, something I was told could happen with the meds I was put on. Kills the pain pretty good, but then not much else gets done afterwards ----

I'll make an effort to get as much done as I can before the end of the GB though, this is a project I want to finish.
