Looking very good. Instrument panels and the seats are excellent. You can appreciate just how small it all is by comparing to the sprue thickness.

As a small aside from Airfix kit bashing, have a look at this!

Thanks Sjors, John R and Jimbo,
Sjors, had to choose the easiest of the lot...time is precious lately and the IAAF World Athletic Championships don't help either...the guys in London get to watch it live.
John, I too checked with my Re8 and found that it's even smaller...soon will have my eyes checked. Did all that in an hour. That was all I had.
Jim, much obliged...sad thing is I just closed it up and not much is visible...
Drilled out all the holes for the rigging. I am trying as much to have most of the wires exit underneath. Not many more parts to fit and it's ready for painting which would probably be next week.
The kit came with a separate airscoop which I drilled out with my recently acquired Japanes drill bits and stuck it on.
It's so small I'm wondering whether to pre shade with a brush or airbrush.
Thanks for dropping in fellas. Incidently I found I have a Matchbox Walrus...very basic but something to think about for a sea dio.

1/2 scale practically might as well build the real thing. RC kits are getting bigger. Good for movie making.

Firstly, nice selection you've made as the kit is very finely detailed from Airfix, but too tiny for me. Secondly, the innards came out fantastic. Love the dashboards and the color scheme. Too bad most of it gets hidden in the long run after the fuselage gets glued together.
Could you maybe place a hobby knife along side of it in your next update? Just to get an idea how big it really is. TIA.

Nice work on the interior, like the instrument panels and seats a lot.
Good luck with the painting.
ps. If you can spare the time I for one welcome the Walrus to the GB.

Hi Allen...thanks. The Airfix new molds are fantastic. I'll be starting my collection again for each release. I'll add a comparison for scale in next post.
Fernando...thank you too. Just took a look at the Walrus kit and checked references...I think it can be done up but will take time...tempting though.
