    OK... Now I'm completing the interior's stuff. These are ammo boxes (feeding previously built machineguns).

    Now I'm using Photobucket, so I can throw in more photos. ;)

    Here's a new hole in the floor: ;-)

    This is an artistic shot of the fuselage with the hole in it... and my fingers: :)

    And this one is to make a little summary. The parts are not glued to the cockpit. It's just to show what it's going to look like. And one more thing: building this model gives a lot of fun, because the parts fit in 99%.

    Thank you friends. :)

    This is the instrument panel:

    [​IMG]

    And that's how the glasses and bezels had been done:
    1. I'm glueing the rings to the panel,
    2. I put PVA into the rings,
    3. As soon as the glasses are dry, I'm making the screws out of PVA drops,
    4. I'm proud of myself. ;)

    Nicely done. I do have a question about the instrument bezels.
    Did they come with the kit, and how did you cut them out? Punch
    and die?

    Also, I wonder how Micro kristal kleer would work compared to
    the normal PVA for the lenses?

    Outstanding work

    Swinger, pretty amazing work. I find the photography just as impressive as the modeling work.

    I also do wonder how something other than PVA would work for the instrument lenses. I'm thinking of the JudyKins Diamond Glaze product.

    WOW! :shock: That is one beautiful panel! Are the instrument rings wire? They look like it, using a technique similar to Scorpio's portholes?

    Thanks for the great pictures and inspiration!

    In the kit was there only the panel itself. The rings are made of copper wire, with the same method as Scorpio used in Rodney's illuminators.

    As for the glasses, they can be made of anything that dries glossy and transparent and have some glueing abilities. In Fokker I used a floor varnish and it was good, too. :) Unfortunately, I haven't heard about the mixtures you've mentioned, Texman & Cecil. ;) You'll have to try them out.

    This is an update of the panel:

    [​IMG]

    A warning for those who want to build the model - you must not grind the 15b+15c former! The instruction doesn't say anything about that... Usually in such cases they order to grind the edges. Here, it was noxious (in my case; that doesn't have to mean anything)... I'm just showing a dangerous moment! ;) Check everything three times before glueing, future builders.

    It's this former:

    Here I also encountered a problem - probably I used a too thick card in the formers in the segment following the cockpit... And I had to shorten the width of the indicated linking strip:

    Hi Swinger

    The whole thing just boggels the mind, fantastic detail and workmanship.

    I only dabble with the planes, watching you do this makes me want to try a few kits myself.

    Keep up the how to does and hints mate well worth watching you work.

    Best regards

    This is a nose. The fitting is fantastic, in my case only the front element (the smallest one) was a little too large.

    Nose looks great I wish I could line those marks up so well.

    Very nice work on the nose, Swinger!
    I am very impressed with the way the holes lined up so well.

    It is apparent you are enjoying this build very much, almost as much as we who are watching this thread. :D
