Just a small update this time, I painted and fitted the bombs to the bomb racks under the bottom wings, the bombs are painted with Humbrol No.7 full gloss Ligh Buff.
There is no colour call-out in the instructions for the bombs. The entire model has now been sprayed with a coat of satin clear, this was done before the gloss finish bombs were fitted.

Gorgeous work Des! The Bombs are terrific and I must mention how fantastic the PC 10 outline on the undersurfaces turned out!

Wonderful finish on the model so far Des. As others have written everything is so clean and sharp - in fact reflecting your usual super-high standards of craftsmanship.

The wheels are now fitted, they were painted white then the red decal applied, the back of the wheels are painted PC10. I have also fitted the struts and the rigging brackets to the bottom wing, getting close now to fitting the top wing then the rigging. The prop has been painted with oils and is still going through the drying process.

Why do you ask Edgar, is there a problem fitting the top wing  ??? ??? ???

I did a quick trial fit and there does not appear to be any issues, I am building this model the same way I build all of my models, it may be different to the way other modelers work but I have always had great success with my technique.

Nope, there should be none of any problems, just asking and hoping to see that next step, as you are the first one who is that far in building the kit
