Super-nice job of detail work in 1/72nd scale. I look forward to more photos as the build continues. Keep up the excellent work.

Sebastiano,

I have been hoping to see the Matchbox kit and Combra Company set built up!

I really like the re-built landing gear struts. Did you need to drill out the inside of the larger tube to get the oleo to fit?

The resin wheels look soooo much better. The Matchbox wheels had an odd cross section, and being perfectly round they gave the model a weird sort of "En Pointe" look.

How are the Cobra resin nacelles working out? How do they fit?

Please keep us posted. Again, Nice Work!!

All the Best,

david

for the interest in my model.
Some answer:
# the landing gear struts are made of copper concentric tubes so I need only to drill the kit's part of gear to fit the new oleo strut.
# the Cobra resin wheels are a copy of the Academy PB4Y-1 wheels, I have buy a couple of True Detail wheels which are much better
# the Cobra resin nacelles not working so fine, they fit very bad and you need a lot of patience and putty to fill the gap and to obtain the correct alignment with the wing, but nothing that can not be solved.
I hope to post some progress nex week.
