Finishing the rear cockpit-wing assembly, and applying the first layer of paint.
So far, everything is fine, and the small details that are not, can be fixed in the future without problem.
There are three lights under the fuselage that were used by the mechanics to check the landing gear and probably (don't remember) the ladder. Tonight I'll search more info and the right colors of the part.

Thanks, Salvador!
I'm working on the booms of the P-38, and the elevator. The idea is to assemble both booms and join all the sides of the "square" at the same time to be sure that the "square" is a square.
I'm trying to make the elevator and tails lighter than usual, because my Me-262 surprised me with the amound of weight that I had to place in the nose.
About the Stranraer, there will be five strips at each side of the fuselage, here I already made strips 2 and 3, both over the waterline of the hull. Strip number 5 will probably help with the wing placement.

Still asembling the right boom of the P-38.
I've been seeing a japanese anime called "Kouya no Kotobuki Hikoutai". It has almost any argument, but the fight scenes between the Ki-43 Hayabusa and the other japanese planes are atractive.
It made me see that I haven't made a japanese paper model yet. I mean, I have some plastic ones, but no paper.
Anyway.
The cooler filters are one of the parts where the realism counts. I have made them with a cut of cloth, painted in black and maybe retouched (later) with a brushstroke of burn iron.

Still making the booms, I'm working from my house (thanks God!) so I have not too much free time.
Thinking about the Hayabusa gave me some ideas about my next plane, can be a A6M Zero on winter colors (green over white), or a Ki-45 on splashed green over bluish gray. Or both!
As I said, I already have two japanese fighters, but made in plastic, not paper.
But for now, we must go step by step: first end the Lightning, later the rest.

And at last the "square" defined by the wing, booms and elevators is finished!
Now it comes to fill the gaps, place the details and, of course, all the forward half of the plane.
As a fan of the photography, You can see that in spite of the paper model being 2mm bigger than the plastic one, the parallax makes it seem smaller. You can see too the difference between flash and natural light.
The national badges are too big in the original model, I had to paint them and use decals. Details, details, details.
If I wanted to open the landing gear pits, this would be the moment, but I'm letting them as black rectangles.

I'm in a stage that would be seen as a regression or a reasset of the model, while it's really an advance.
And that's it because while assembling the booms and the superchargers installations, I found that the invasiond bands in the original paper model where too small. They must reach to the front of the coolant radiators. So I had to redraw them, and they look still unfinished and badly draw.
Another detail I'm improving is that the superchargers instalation is buried under the skin of the booms. The instructios of the original paper model have a complete lack of details in that area (same at the propellers).
Anyway, and having found pictures of the real part, I proceded to cut the upper side of the booms over the wing, and started the process to paint and assemble the superchargers. As a side proyect, I could improve the plastic model on this place too.
You can see an unpainted oval on the inner sides of the engines, ahead of the wings. It's (or will be) a polished surface that let the pilot see if the front landing gear is extended and correctly deployed.
About the Stranraer, I'm drawing the cuts in the ribs where the spars will go. Soon, I'll draw the rest of the spars, and proceed to make a test. Later, the skin of the fuselage will follow.
