Any word if he is going to restore the landing gear and install it? Or if there is even landing gear for it? Excellent job (as always). Whats next? Tony? Nick? Betty Wings?!?

I read on one of the forum that the gears are being worked on and installed soon.

As for the Betty and the wings....I guess the main issue may be display space...but would that look sharp or what????
