Looks good so far. I built the 202, the 205 and the Re2005 from PCM and even if they qualify as short run, they are super kits. Take care with dry fitting and give the fuselage and wing halves a quick swipe on a piece of sandpaper flat on the table and you'll be fine. Loved them

 

Yeh I noticed a bit of slag on the mating surfaces. Mine has a very rough surface as well, I'll need to run some 2000 grit over it before painting.

Photoetch for the cockpit is ok, although some parts are very fiddly. The give some film for the instruments, but it's not very good so I'll probably use some instrument decals on the panel.

A bit of a gap there.

 

Love to see how the cockpit turns out! :)

Wow, that's large. Any thoughts on how you'll fix it? Besides lotsa putty?

I fixed it with plastic card and super glue after I snapped that shot. I'll take some more picture tonight.

Some green paint this evening. I've also filled the gaps in the lower cowling and installed the tail wheel interior.

I picked out a few of the details and slapped some future on it. Tomorrow a wash and a little dry brushing and I'll see what I can do about the instrument panel. It looks a bit plain at the moment, but some airscale decals should liven it up a little. I do confess to leaving off some of the smallest photo etch bits because no ones going to miss them and they are frustrating to apply.

Looking good Brad. Are you going to go for a matt coat on the cockpit? It looks little glossy.

Oh yeh, it's just glossy so I can apply a wash without staining the paint.

Instrument panel done with Airscale decals and the kit supplied acetate below. Without the flash, you can hardly see the instruments on the acetate. You should be able to see the decals. I have no idea which decals I used, but I doubt anyone will notice they are RAF instruments.
