Augie, you finished a fanatstic project! I like the outcome 👍
A technical question (I'm an engineer 😉 ): Would it be possible to retract the landing gear? It looks on the pictures, that there is a conflict between the wing tips and the main gear? Looks also like a tight fit on the original pictures.

Thanks Gary

Bugs, your right its a very tight fit and its possible to retract the gear, I measured it out to make sure when I worked out where the XS-1 sat in the bay. Its a tight fit, from what I can tell on picture I saw of the original retracting her gear, the clearances look to be inches..

Had to drill some holes in to the exhausts as the kit didn't had any.

Finally completed. I am pleased with the way it turned out. Academy has done a great kit. Even tho I struggled with my conscience a bit , I decided to go with the full array of turrets and blister side windows despite that the real life Bockscar was a silverplate and did not have these , but I thought it looks so much better with them that i couldn't live with the idea of finishing it without them
