Since then, I have stripped the original paint scheme using warm water and soap and repainted the model in its' three tone scheme of Tan, Desert Brown and Black.
Both the fuselage and wing assemblies were put together, and the wings, tail rudders and fuselage assemblies put together . The exhaust stacks were added and a touch up paint scheme was done to smooth over the rough edges.
The turret assemblies were completed and added, and all that remains is the applying of decals.
Here it is in a close up and with some of the Decals in place
Here are some photos of actual wellingtons from a Royal Canadian Air Force Squadron that operated in
North Africa in the final year of 1943

A great diorama shot for depicting life in the desert.
