Dystopia Bronco Part 5: Fuselage

Finally I could close up the fuselage. The seam is long and flat, a recipe for an awkward join, that's Tamiya filler!

It's going to have fixed undercarriage so the nose wheel was blanked off using thin "steel" plates, simulated by plastic card.

Space for smuggling as much as possible is at a premium, so a Jerry can rack was made from Albion Alloys tubing, spare bits and some photo etch.

Right, lots going on here. An auxiliary ventral tank covers up the worst of that seam. This is going to be the new undercarriage mount, it's going to take a lot of pounding so needed strengthening hence the Albion Alloys tubing. Those WMIK bits on the outside are part of the suspension system.
