Onto the landing gear and first battle with photo etch.
And quick comparison with the standard kit part.
I also need to adjust the landing gear torun power through them. My first thought was to drill the main strut. But it’s too long and leaves a very thin wall. So found some plastic tube that was pretty much the right size and cut the main strut out and replaced it. Need to replace couple of details yet but at least I have a conduit now.
Got all 5 landing gears assembled, including one of the double ones which has channels both ends to run cables.
Landing gears have been painted up using Vallejo off-white with a small squirt of sky grey. Not too worried about being able to match that colour because the legs are going to be most heavily weathered.
