Nice! I have this one in the stash I think the "B"  version might put it in the GB here or go a B-25.The wear and tear looks very good also looking forward to the end results.;)

Just a little update from my side;

Today i finished up most of the plane. Removed the masking, glued to wheels and props and did some final post-shading and blending. Added the rigging and hoping to finish up tomorrow. Got a new kit in the queue, so need to finish this beauty.

still with some foam during the curing of the glue.

the wheels are a real nightmare on this kit, as the way that they are glued inside the wells is just awefull engineered.

very satisifying when it's all going as planned.

Beautiful!  How strong (or how weak) do the main landing gear feel? I think with my build I will probably add plastic blocks to the inside of the nacelle to give it more support when I do my build

When you make sure that the pin and receiver are fitting well, as in the pin is fully inserted, you can glue more of the gear struts against that bulkhead. It will offer some extra support 

I would say, if you treat the model as you should treat a static model, it will do fine. I'm more afraid of the times  I will take it out on display somewhere else.
