Very old Airfix Beaufighter with large scratch built ventral pannier.  New wings from equally old Airfix Mosquito.  Worse landing gear assembly/design ever!
Work in progress ::

I am giving up listing them. They all end up on the shelf of procrastination anyways.

Very interesting. That'll be a real head-scratcher when complete!
