    Thanks Mike. Yeah, there is stuff crammed everywhere. There's more on the other side too, it looks like it's the same part that's under the I-19 on the back end.

    Edit here's the part.

    I don't mean the hose on the left but the piece under it.

    Looks really familiar as in something I built as a kid, civil aircraft undercarriage, Boeing 747?

    Boeing 747 by Revell 8.20-ish in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5DCNWR3NE4 front undercarriage - looks about 15-20mm long, is that too small?

    Can't find a decent pic of a kit but the 707 looks pretty similar also.

    A wrench? Ha, I thought the same when I first saw it.

    Could be a 707 made by another manufacturer, I saw three 747 kits and they all looked different.

    You have probably come across this site with an image search, but they show the parts content of 50% or so of the kits https://www.cybermodeler.com/search.shtml

    Thats one of the sites I use, or ebay. Sometimes it has decent pictures. I'm leaning towards Airfix as the supplier of all the struts, the only other donated one so far comes from Otaki.

    EDIT...Duh! I forgot about FROG as a supplier too.

    A few missing parts and then I need to learn how to paint.

    Impressive. Most impressive. Especially how you've tricked the eye and the camera into thinking you can fit all those nurnies onto the upper tee plate, which you can't. Some serious magic hands at work here... Looks fantastic -- can't wait to see it painted.

    Thanks SK, I appreciate it!

    The painting will be the issue. I'm not a fan the screen used job. I have no intentions of copying that paint job (even if I could, yuck...green just doesn't look right on it). I'm no artist with an airbrush either so it will most likely be an interpretation of a TK paint job based on me, since I'm the one who has to look at it. :D

    Cheers

    Waiting for some wash so I can tone down the white. I don't want to weather it too much, I like it as it is so far.

    Thanks Mike!

    Other than the base which is Valspar white primer from Michaels. Everything is Tamiya acrylics, and I did mix the blue and the yellows, airbrushed the soot and worked in some Tamiya weathering master pastels to tone down the black and add the yellow to the pipes.

    That is a NICE find: does everyone also already know that the greeblie at the bottom of that sidewall piece is the Airfix/MPC 1/24 Hurricane (retractable) boarding ladder, part #216. I'm assuming so, but it was news to me thanks to your find.

    I knew the part from the kit but didn't know what it did. Interesting, I never really considered the function of the parts in real life.

    Nice find! I just scratched that pipe on mine and never really liked it. I'm going to have to add this.

    Awesome find -- well done! Always amazing to me how often "boredom" is the basis for creativity. I've found "most" of the things I've found while looking for something else.
