    Gloucester Nige got a reaction from williamj in HK Lanc pilots seat   
    I made this a couple of weeks back, I think it's pretty close?
     

     

     

     
    It should also be noted the floor mount is too high so if you correct the height of the armour plate it will hit the canopy. It is also too wide and too long.
    I did this from pictures, which is wrong inmost peoples opinions, but it looks far better than the kit supplied seat.. hell, the Airfix 1/72 seat is better!!
     
    Having done this I can also confirm the front of the seat is in the correct position in relation to the IP. I have used the kit supplied holes and moved the rear holes forward. Not that that matters much because I have now removed the seat floor platform and am replacing it wioth something a little more to scale.

    So pleased to see the halves go together nicely.As mentioned before, it would appear that there are rumours of issues with the fuselage fit due to all the internal bulkheads.
     
    I just received the DN masks for this variant from Mitko at DN Models. I am about to put up a review of the set on my You Tube channel, "Nigel's modelling bench", I have also shown how I corrected the prop blade length and have some other reviews up too. (I won't put a link here because all we'll get is a load of comments from people who don't like videos).
     
    The IP set from Airscale is lovely isn't it? By the by, That was my kit parts that Peter used to make the set from and in his initial shots on the instruction card. I begged him to do it, sent him my insructions and parts, and the rest is history...
     
    I am also doing some work on nose weight and where to put it. I think, if we slice up some sheet lead we can get about 180-200 grammes under the cockpit floor. I'm also thinking perhaps some more sheet lead in front of the bulkhead ahead of the IP? Have you done a mock up yet to see if 300 grammes is sufficient?
     
    Looking forward to more progress on this build.

    Couple of hours spent building the interior structure
     

     

     
    And test fitting
     

     

     
    And both halves. No fit problems

    As much as I agree with your sentiment regarding "modelling" Iain, I am surprised at your reaction to the subject regarding EPM's on modern day kits. This kit has many EPM's in very difficult to remove locations. As I see it, this is not a matter of, "modelling skill" to remove them, but more of the fact they shouldn't be there on such a well devolped expensive kit. Modern kits shouldn't have these marks on exposed parts full stop..

    Me too Iain, OOB is great but it wears a little thin after a while eh...
     
    I haven't looked closely at anything other than the IP yet. I know nothing about the subject so cannot advise. I do have a reference book on the way from the USA so as soon as it arrives I'll check it out.
     
    The IP is very flat looking and could do with a replacement that has more defined bezels etc. Airscale to the rescue??
