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.

Mounted the top wing today, it went on really easy with no issues what so ever, now comes the fun part, the rigging.

What a beauty she is, Des, even without the rigging!  Another masterpiece in the making!
Cheers,

just cranking this badboy out huh des. looks very nice. and i like how you are branching sometimes to 1/48 which gains you access to different types that could possibly never be done in 1/32. not that you couldnt just crank anything you want out of evergreen and brass but i know its nice to build a cool kit sometimes.

Des,
Absolutely beautiful work  my old friend. I tend to shy away from 1/48th scale anymore myself. But I still recognize the works of a true Master. Well Done and keep up the great works.
Highest Regards
