Rescue Lanc, cockpit silliness

LOL. Tried a dreaded wingtip tonight. Installed the spacer first, then th aileron spar. Tip fit OK. Not perfect, but OK. A bit of sanding and a skim of filler on the seam should make it perfect.

I hope the other side is as nice.

Not much happening here, just a bit of playing around with this. Obviously when I break out the brass, piano wire and evergreen, the build is about to go full on stupid.  I must resist. OOB, OOB, OOB.....

Alrighty then. A small update on this.  I’ve been playing around with some green tones. 

I don’t like the RAF interior green they give us in a bottle, so I’ve been mixing a bit of interior green into the RAF stuff until I came up with this. I think it looks convinced enough to me, so I’m going with it. 

I’ve seen pics of a non skid walkway on these, so I added one.  I’ll shorten it up a bit, but this is as it is right now. It’s way to stark for me  I think I’ll hit it with my old black standby, RLM66.

All I’ve done for mods is to lower the pilot’s pedestal to slightly less freeboard, mess with the seat to where it’s ok, and add the bare minimum of missing plumbing, plus holders for maps and the “How to Fly an Aeroplane” book. 

Comments welcome

I also tried blacking out the rear of the pedestal. I’m thinking that after some doctoring up, through the birdcage it’ll pass for the open space that was there on the real ship. 

Maybe

The seat isn’t done and I have yet to build a mount for it, but it will feature a comfy cushion, because late 50s, early 60s RCAF SAR birds featured plenty of store bought seat cushions to fill the space meant for a parachute. I’ll make a cushion out of Milliput because that thing looks like a plank.

It was peacetime and the old Lanc wasn’t going to go round and round with a Soviet submarine.   They had the Neptune and the brand new Canadair Argus coming on line for those fights.

Be kind. :)  I realize most of this won’t be seen when the canopy is on. So no, I didn’t get goofy with the details or the filling of the floor seam. The RCAF Lanc has a solid canopy to, so it’ll be even less visible
