Thanks again for the thoughts, guys.

Cockpit coming together now. Scratched some neat little gauges with some cut brass tube and some well placed paint. Gave them a glassy effect with a drop of canopy glue.

Jim,

​The work in the cockpit and the seat is first class.

Mated the fuselage halves and got on with some more skining. Here, I'm extending what I learned about the rudder to the spar effect I need for the fuselage. I think this is working really well. img_7168.jpgimg_7170.jpgimg_7172.jpg

Hi Jim

So sorry to hear of Tess. Twelve is a good age for a Golden. Our first two dogs were Goldens. My son learned to walk by hanging onto our Honey's neck. She was almost thirteen when we had to have her put to sleep. The vet said that he had hoped that she would make thirteen - he had not had a Golden make that age before.

The seat and the cockpit look very nice.

Thanks Jim and Bobby.

My interior work is admittedly light as I just did not want to get too consumed by all that involves to the risk of ever finishing the project. To hide my laziness, I've got Flight Lieutenant John Hall here, signaling to his students that it's go time. He's a nice fig from the 70's Spitfire kit. I think he will help to give the viewer the sense of scale. This was no little biplane.

I think this will be the plane:

Awesome work as always. I really like what you have done in the cockpit. The iconic shape of the fuselage has come on really well

Thanks Steve.

I feel like a kid at a playground here today. Going from wheels to figure to radiator . There is SO much to do. I struggled a bit to find a radiator grille in metal that made me happy (Nick's idea about a shaver's screen was good but I failed to actually find one). So...I printed one! I think it does the trick and the price is right. The vents you see (made from sheet stock) open and close like blinds on the real plane. Still need to close up the front/sides.

I like how his goggles turned out with a drop of plastic cement in the frame. That figure is 40 years old. He looks really pleased to be built finally! Burnt Sienna for the leather jacket worked well.
