Oh, mama!  That office looks pretty!  I can imagine that as often nocturnal animals, there would be plenty of wear in the pit from many missions flown.  However...I'd be really tempted to leave it as is.

Thanks Gaz and yeah, like you I am not planning to go to overboard with wear and chipping as I quite look how it is at the moment.

 

Regards. Andy

Jesus H on a bike, that looks fantastic - have a couple of the conversions, but not brave enough to do what you have -
always liked the 188 since I first saw the Matchbox kit all those years ago... looking forward very much to seeing you finish it next year, I've a feeling it's going to be very special.

Thank you Kagemusha, like you I've always loved the 188, had that wonderful Matchbox kit as a kid, then the Dragon 48th scale kit but never built it so when I recieved the 88 as a present last Christmas it was always going to built as a 188

Had a couple of spare hours this moening so got the cockpit tub back together which went pretty smoothly in the end.

The replacement rear floor and then added the B stand ammo boxes followed by the radio rack.

Also couldnt resist a quick test fit of the main sub assemblies.

Altough a rough test fit I'm pretty happy as all looks like it will fit together without to many drama's.

 

As ever thanks for looking and a very Merry Christmas to everyone.

 

Regards. Andy

Andy,

Great work!

I doesn't even look like it was cut apart.

Looks awesome when fitted in the fuselage.

Cheers, Ian

Thank Ian, there are  a couple of visible cut areas that need filling but very happy so far, also can I say that this will be one very big bird when complete!
