Here's mine.
The Revell Beau is a great canvas, although it can use some more aftermarket sets.

And so it begins. I used cockpit bulkhead from the kit; I opened it up quite a bit. There's a rather large diameter heating duct that runs through there. The fuselage is taped in place, white glue on the bulkhead to set it in the proper spot...

Next up is a bunch of horizontal stringers...

Great scratch building Bill. These old kits sure teach you to improvise, they can be a pain but are fun to build. :)

Fictitious, but most of it won't be seen.

The stringers looked a bit sparse; I added more.

Next up: the dreaded cockpit. The kit cockpit tub - notice the 2-D detail on the side consoles. Revell provides decals to go over these. I'll use the side consoles, building them up a bit.

With the wing openings filled, the tub is too wide...

Some careful measurement and cutting, and we have this:

The console itself slopes downward toward the front; I still need to figure the angle. It should be a good modelling weekend!

Thanks, Håkan! Most of it will be hidden, but I'll know it's in there...

Just caught up Bill..Impressed that you address the "little" things that can't eve be seen or appreciated but by other modelers!

 

This model looks really big!

Great job! Allthough I'm not a fan of showing off in the threads of others, I think maybe you can benefit from my rebuild of the Revell Beaufighter...
