Thanks a lot everyone for your kind comments

@Marco_4124
Could be a nice homage, but no... it'll be an adventure plane, three or four seater cabin and lots of cargo space, ala Indiana Jones, for our National Playmographic Society

Some progress btw...  Still no luck with the piece for the landing gear-- Ideas??

@Jimbo   Thnx mate!  :wave:

Some progress, this project is developing slowly but surely  8}

Rounded doors, there will be one extra door inscribed into the cargo door, opened independently, with stairs and rope rails
