  1. Fuselage halves together...   wings dryfitted.. it's taken a while to get to this point!

     

    It's been a hugely enjoyable build so far.. 

     

    Engine still needs a few touch ups.  You might remember I had the Eduard PE set for ignition wiring, fuel lines, etc - but I wasn't happy with the result and I didn't use much in the end.. however I did add a little wiring myself..

  2. Love the seats and seat belts!

     

    Thanks Ralph!

     

     

    I've finished the cockpit now.  Still plenty more that could be done.. more wiring, weathering, etc.   I'll save that for next time. 

     

    Cockpit was painted with Tamiya, Vallejo, Gunze.   FYI the seat was painted Gunze  H-47 Red-Brown .   

     

    Weathering was fairly simple - gloss coat, followed by an  oil wash and flat coat.     (Same approach for the HGW belts). 

     

    Getting ready to button up the fuselage halves!

  3. Once again..  back to the Spitfire.  This sounds like deja vu.. :rolleyes:
