Obviously as this part of the model will be conveniently hidden I don't have to do too much to this area, but I did want to neaten it up. I've also tried to make slots to securely hold the axels in place, just to make sure the wheels are all nice and level...
But...I haven't finished with the underside of this truck yet. I haven't fixed the axels into place as I want to add 'mud' and other weathering effects to the underside before fixing the wheels permanently into place. Getting into the underside of the mudguards - for example - is a bit tricky with the wheels attached.
First job is to spray the underside with a coat of the base - Light Olive - colour and then give the whole truck a light coat of satin varnish before moving on to the basic pin-washing phase.

applied the Finnish 'SA' number plates.
