    After the creation of this great topic by Lis @lis, I propossed to continue the Wellington within this group.

    I started the 1/72 Trumpeter Wellington two months ago in this topic,

    https://imodeler.com/groups/work-in-progress-aircraft/forum/topic/trumpeter-vickers-wellington-mk-ic-1-72/

    I will continue the build in this thread as it suites this topic well.

    Latest progress is done on the interior, still.

    The addition of the Eduard PE set does require quite a lot of extra work but it does look a lot more detailed.

    Wonderful work!
    The wing structure is also a bit strong on the 1/48 Welli.
    Here a photo.

    @Matra, thanks a lot Trachel.
    Your Wellington looks excellent. From the picture the structure does not look obvious to my opinion.

    Some more work done on the interior.

    The steering wheels are placed on the sticks, not that easy to get those PE parts in parallel with CA glue.

    Also the bomb area has received some painting, dark grey/black mixture and aluminum dry-brush.

    The inside of the fuselages have been painted with a reddish color.

    Found that this paint/coating was applied on the fabric. This material caused the fabric to shrink and tighten it around the geodetic frame. The frame will get a metalish color next.

    Absolutely fabulous work you've accomplished there. One minor quibble, please refrain from saying "steering wheel" when you mean "control yoke..."

    @davekight, thanks David. I appreciate your correction, was not sure about how to call it correctly.

    Some strong impressive work in the gentleman's scale John. I've been working in 1/72nd scale on several projects and every time I pull out a magnifier I swallow my pride and make corrections. This scale is more like practicing surgery but, the results can be impressive when practiced by a artist. Lookin good.

    @stephen-w-towle, thanks a lot Stephen. In the past, 1/72 was the main scale for me, also because of the price. At that time it worked well, but since I restarted the hobby it became clear that my eyes are definitely not comfortable with 1/72 anymore. Since this was a gift of my daughter I defintely wanted to give it a try.
