Gateway Shuttle - starting the rear section.

Very simple this. Put some Plasticard on the underside of the "wings". Got some of this neat semicircle tubing (from B&Q - used for concealing wiring along your skirtingboard), so cut some to size, made a platform for the wings to sit on and attached them. On the original studio model the "wings" were left open on the front but i didn't want that. Blanked them off and added a couple of engine cowls from the B-29 which luckily almost fit. Finally, tidied up the end of the tubing with a piece of ribbed Plasticard.
