And then primed with Tamiya Fine Surface Primer and coated with RLM 02 Grey (Mr Hobby Color 70). You will see this dries with a sating sheen, which should make adding a pin wash easier (although I'll probably still mist over some Klear.

The next stage is to pick out the suface detal and lightly weather with washes, some minor chipping (using the sponge technique) and a little light dry brushing. Then add the etch.

Superb to see this back on the go, sir. Wow, there is some wonderful detail in this cockpit.
What's this primer stuff, then? Great work, looking forward to this big lady going together.

Thank you chaps. It is very flattering to have you still sticking with this when I have only been on the forums very infrequently over the last couple of weeks.
The key thing here is to pay attention to the parts numbers, as I think they are handed, and the curve of the glazing matches the curve of the fuselage, so it is important to get the right pice of glazing in the right hole! The glazine is coated with Klear and fixed in place with Liquid Weld Glue . This is a thin liquid like CA, except it sets once it's excluded from contact with air, so you can manouver a pice into place and then set it by pressing it down in place. Testing to date suggests it's as least as strong as CA glue, but doesn't fog clear parts. It's expensive, but you get a lot of it for the money. I am impressed with it so far having used on this kit, my Panther G and my recent diorama

I have made more progress on the cockpit, but will wait until this is finished before posting the pics so I can write is as a small step-by-step piece.

Interesting glue Sean. Can't get it here of course but it's added to the shopping list. Very neat and tidy work on those windows.
