Was this a kit or did you build it from scratch?

Thank you Gordon it has been a very enjoyable build so far,probably because my heart is in the subject.

Had a look at your gallery photos. Please keep those coming. Interesting photo of using a solid to do a flying model rather than the other way round.

Lou I used a solid model and a Frog plastic model as well to study things such as the wheel spats,using a 3D small model and having it on your workbench as you go along is a good idea,sometimes a plan does not convey the shape you want or a photograph for that matter either,also building a solid gives you a feel for the subject before you tackle the big one.
A friend gave me a 475 photo walk around of the Proctor as well which has a lot of the detail I want to incorporate.

As you can see from the gallery pictures there are lots of solid model elements to this model otherwise I would not normally post my flying models here,but things like the wheel spats and nose cowl are like solids in themselves of aircraft parts,
