Transport aircraft Li-2: the history of one assembly 8

The tail wheel is the same. I made it turning. Here is the rear wheel plug along with the strut, although the original design is separate. But, this is a cardboard model and its complexity should be in balance with the simplicity of the cardboard technology genre as a whole. But, this is again a matter for discussion. How complex should be a cardboard model be?

And some more details need to be painted.
