As ever, I started in the cockpit.

First job was to hack off the moulded on controls, paint and attach the PE controls and instruments.

Some of the parts were damn small, the picture immediately above is next to a number 11 scalpel blade to give you an idea of size!

For an encore I got the resin bang seats painted, washed and weathered.

Its a wow from me Bob.
I take my hat off to you with that amount of micro detail on those controls, I'd be hard pressed to see it with out trying to hold things.

Cheers Gents. :smiling3:

I realised about an hour after posting the pics that I had forgotten to add the PE belts to the seats, so I had to pull them back out. Luckily the glue hadn't fully set. I will rectify that tonight.

Hi Bob
Wow indeed. That cockpit is stunning. Some of those PE pieces are nightmare small. Seats are great.
