Heinkel HE P.1078B - part 5

Landing gears and wheel wells done!
It took a lot of effort to adjust the scales of the landing gears to get a good fit without compromising the overall visual proportions of the model.

The picture above shows how the landing gears would fit inside the weapons and cockpit pods.  Very tight fit indeed.  Note that the weapons pod should also contain three 30mm guns!  I don't know how I'll fit that one in.  But there IS still space left between the front wheel wells. :)

Here's how it looks like from the side with the wheel covers. 

Ready for take off!  Man... had this aircraft been produced, it would have looked really badass.

I'm thinking of whether or not to put the gun pod holes, or just paint it as a texture.
