Very nice and what a relief, that you don't seem to have fallen into the usual Italeri blues. The Tornado must be a better kit than these other patience testers.

Thank you for your feedback Harv, Gary and DocRob.

The quality of the kit and the detailing is much better than that of the Mirage. 
So up to now it’s no patience tester at all.        I hope that this will go on during the rest of the build…😉

Your Rio bangseat and instrument panel assembly look spot on and so good. Weathering is light, so very realistic and so good..

Your style of weathering compliments my thoughts and preference: light and delicate to bring out the details and textures. Anything more would require the model to be shown on a vignette style base, letting the viewer understand: time, place and the reason for the chosen weathering.

Keep 'em comin

Thank you for your feedback Peter. I like smooth weathering too only to bring out the details.

I managed to nearly complete the cockpit within the last days. Only the oxygen hoses of the crew are missing and I have to add the first light to the HUD. I have to scratch the hoses with wire because the ones from PJ Productions included are unusable.

Here are some pics of the actual status:

Thank you all for your feedback. 

Today I managed to add all missing hoses: The oxygen hoses of the crews‘ oxygen masks and the hoses to the ejection seats.

For the masks of the crew I found a perfect reference foto in the internet:

And for the hoses to the ejection seats:

All hoses were scratched from wire.

This is how they came out:

Pilot and front ejection seat:

WSO and back ejection seat:

Final step will be adding the light to the HUD.

This will be the topic for the next post.

Great texturing on those hoses, Kai!  The lighting on the HUD will be awesome!

Thank you for your feedback Gary! I try to do the lighting on the HUD this weekend and post some pictures here then.

Today I managed to install the light for the HUD.

It‘s one of the lights out the set from Magic Scale Modeling which I will use for the Model.

The set consists of a motherboard and LEDs which have to be painted with transparent colors because they are very bright. 
They are glued in place with UV-glue which comes with the set. This one I bought extra for my Dambuster Lancaster because there were many more things to attach.

Bondic UV-glue set:

Test-run with painted light:

Mother board and power supply:

Light running:

B90471B8-EC32-464A-8DA5-DED1519C76F6.thumb.jpeg.f607abde704bafc9e062cee7aea0ae4a.jpeg

And switched off:

Cabling alongside the cockpit tub:

Everything stored for further assembly.

The „3“ belongs to the pin on the motherboard to which the plug has to be connected in the end.

It‘s really plug-n-play. You only have to think about where to place the motherboard in the model and how to do the cabling within the model.

Now the cockpit is complete and I can start with the undercarriage.
