    The Archer rivets are very easy to use Harald, and will add a lot of the character to your Lynx.  Just tedious cutting strips of rivets and applying them (like decals), but not difficult.

    Got the sliding doors painted. Mostly to test the home made masks...  They came out well! Took 2 attempts to cut as the first batch did not cut through, which was annoying as it cost me 9 inches of film...

    Engine deck and cowlings assembled:

     
    The Tailboom and pylon are together and sanded, the nosecone is together and sanded, still wondering if I should paint the red portions first, or after... It may be easier to paint the reds first then mask and paint the grey, but that is not how it would have been painted i real life... (yeah I know, not real life...)
     
    We shall see, I am still a bit so-so on the quality, it runs from superb quality 90% of the way, and 10% garbage. but the price was OK for a 32nd scale kit, so I guess I can live with that...

    OK, had some progress today! Got the nose glued together. A 4 piece affair, and Revell did dissapoint a bit here... Also Tail boom and pylon together but some work to be done before I'll show them off. The fir is excellent in places and very so-so in others, very strange. Oh well, we shall jump this hurdle too.
     
    Here is the cabin mocked up, the 6 man bench seat can be either sideways or fore/aft, I decided to mount mine fore aft for a change of scenery, then the guys facing forward can see something.

    up on its legs, some parts of the MLG still missing.
    i decided to not use the tanks, they are not pointy enough and i made the fins too small  . on top of that, the drawings i used seem to render them not long enough. besides there are a lot of wartime pics with planes without tanks....

    @Robthepom, nope! Not even close to your skills! Wow that PE interior looks amazing. Rivets... Well I Have them, but not for this project, this one was straight fun, no challenges... And patience which I lack severely at the moment.
     
    No. I'm going for a clean used bird.
     
    It's got the stance now:

    Wheels/LG struts are not glued in, I just had to see the stance... I need to fit clears, mask and paint the fuselage first. So a little work on that. But alas I am busy tomorrow, and go back to my regular shift on Monday, so likely won't be much done before I come back!
     
    Wonder if anyone called this one "Rudolf"... The pictures certainly show a very shiny red nose, even if the fuselage was a bit "worn"

    So, I got back from my extra week of work, got some dental work done, done the run around, honey-do list, and finally got to sit down some... Not much, have a bruised tailbone, which makes sitting in my chair awkward... 
     
    Anyway, scaled and sized my masks, cut them on Oramask 810, and they look fantastic! now I just need to get a chance to use them! Have also made some masks for my 72nd Hawker Typhoon, which is ready for paint, so I will just have to see how we did!
     
    Anyway, progress pics:

    Got a little more done, and threw some MrP 36231 on the cockpit floor and console, and soundproofing for rear cabin, probably a little work to be done on cockpit internals before I can paint those, so that will wait.
     
    Unfortunately I got a callback to work, so have to take another 5 or so day break...

    OK, So I bit off more than I could chew, sorta.
     
    Looked at the panel in the kit, And it is remarkably close to accurate with regards to the pilot and middle, only the observer's side is not correct. So instead of building the entire panel from scratch I removed the details from the Observers side, installed a 'quasi' radar screen, the 3 instruments that go on the side, and a bar to represent the radar conrols, and one to represent the pubs shelf with cover on. I could make the radar screen smaller with the keyboard on the side, but I decided to just leave as is, likely I'm the only one going to care anyway!
     
    I removed the details from the dual controls, such as the mounting plate for copilot cyclic, the pedals and pedal adjuster. I will remove the collective from the unit itself lare, attach and get ready for paint for this part. I hope to throw the center console on and start picking out details and perhaps fire up some cabin work!
     
    The kit details are certainly very much better than the Revell kits of yore...

    OK, so got delayed 1 day at work... Not all good, not all bad... Oh well, decided to do some research, and found that the panel in the kit is for the HAS.3 trainer that the Black Cats use, which has dual controls and instruments, whilst the one I wish to build has a single pilot and a "Looker" or Observer, and can be configured 1 of 3 ways, none of which are employed in the kit version. So, I decided to take the instrument panel to task, and put my wife's Silhouette Cameo cutter to use. I have designed it, I just need to tweak my design to fit the actual instrument panel in the kit, and make the required boxes etc. I drew the image in inkscape, "borrowing" an Eduard Sheet and pictures of the real thing. Hopfully this will work. I plan on using some Airscale and kid decals as well as Archer rivets and various round rod etc for knobs and whatnots. Anyway, this is a simplified drawing so far:
     

     
    I can give you a copy of the .svg file should anyone want it.
     
    Hopefully I'll be able to post pictures of model box goodies tomorrow...

    Cheers
