Working on the cockpit, I've got quite a bit done.

I'm using some of the details from the Eduard interior set.

Here's the side consoles attached to the front bulkhead. Of course, most of this will be a challenge to see once the fuselage is closed up.

I've also started working on the HGW belts so have those done shortly.

Thanks Peter!

I'm getting a bit better at doing the small details. I really should get some reading glasses though.

Thanks Shaka! Would you believe I didn't work on anything for 2 weeks? I'm usually a stay at home dad but I've helping out at my old work for Christmas so that's cut into some of my time. I'm still not up to John speed though :)

I'm really fortunate that my wife gives me plenty of bench time so that helps too.

Don, I debated wiring the engine. This is my third try at it. The first two were on my HK B-25, which is all I've done.

I think I've got a better idea on doing it so we'll see what happens the next time I try one.

After working on the F-4 the last few days, I came back to the Corsair.

I finished up the cockpit assemblies, starting with installing the HGW seatbelts.

Next up was the Yahu IP panel. These really look great.

I then installed the completed cockpit into the fuselage and closed it up.

Now back to the F-4...

Super work on the Corsair's front office - looking mighty good.

Te Yahu IP seems to work very well and looks good. Any problems with installing them?

Keep 'em comin

Thanks Peter!

The Yahu panel fits really well. You have to sand the kit panel flat, which is the same as the Eduard panel. The printed detail is much sharper and doesn't have the pixelation that a lot of the Eduard panels suffer from. I'll try to post a comparison when I can.
