I am a new follower. He seems like a real nice genuine guy and often replies to comments or at least gives a like.

This is insanity!  I'm following as well, Tom.  This will be one for the books.

Afternoon, folks :)

Not a huge amount of progress of late due to work commitments, but I've gradually been adding the interior structure of the forward bow section. My measurements have only been approximate and don't look at this as an example of accuracy, I am just hoping to fill out the interior and make it representative of the real thing.

First up has been the forward flooring and ladder up to the flightdeck:

The raised pierced flooring for the tapered front section is yet to be made - I'm trying to come up with a plan to avoid drilling hundreds of holes...

I've added some detail to the areas of the sidewalls that will be visible:

The door on the rear bulkhead is, as far as I can tell, not present on the real aircraft and it's an open doorway, but as I'm not going to detailing the room behind I hope the Sunderland aficionados can forgive me..?

It looks as if a fair bit will be visible through the forward door, so lots more detail to add in due course:

Until next time,

Tom

Loving this one. Superb work so far. I'm big into interiors so can't wait to see what you do there.

I like what you've done to the interior, too.

..now slides The sheer bulk of the fuselage and the size of the real aircraft is quickly becoming apparent:

A few more bulkheads to fabricate, and then it'll be on with making the finer details of the interior areas that will be visible.

 

Until next time,

Jeeze Oh Pete!!!! You could almost live in there.
