    Then I felt these side-walls were a bit too bare, so I scratch-built some additional items using a variety of wires and - believe it or not - some paper.


    The LH-side of the cockpit houses a priming pump adjacent to the seat.  I manufactured this out of some 2 and 0.5 mm coper wire.
     
    Slapping some paint on:



    The last two pictures show the effect of the synthaglass on the individual instruments a little more clearly.  A bit out of focus - but so am I occasionally.  Nothing wrong with that
     

     
    I took quit a number of pictures with the fuselage upside down to make sure the details were not hidden in the shadow (taken at night and I only use a table light to work by as this most effectively lights up the working space - all other light sources create too much of a shadow.
     
    So once I was happy with the paint-work I was ready to further ensure a proper fit between both fuselage halves and the cockpit floor.

    Good choice!
     
    I've build this kit (Armee de l'Air Version) some years ago. Build blog here. The front bulkhead of the cockpit was a bit tricky. Also faced a large gap at on wingroot. Placement of the UC flaps caused some headache (IIRC they overlap somewhat, but the instructions are not very helpful here). Everthing else went smooth. The Montex masks are highly recommended. There is or was a replacement prop/spinner/front end set from Poland (didn't use it, was hard to get so I skipped the idea).
     
    Nice idea to build a Finnish one! Have fun!

    LEM kits is still busy pumping out LSP kits of aircraft never made as LSP kits before. Not one or two, but a fistful every year.
     
    I wish Tan Models would release it's Su-33, but I guess things in Turkeys economy are going sideways nowadays.
    ZM is busy. They offer new LSP kits before the last had hit the shelves in Europa. That's fast!
    HPHs injection molding line is looming at the horizon. Let's se what Nurenberg toy fair will bring.
    We've got brand new kits of both the F-5 and the Rafale. Today there are even both a Mig-23BN and a Mig-27 available. Great times for jet modellers!
     
    With 55 unbuild LSP kits in the stash (counted them at years end) my true wish for this or next year is just a re-release of Revells Ju-88A-4, without all that expensive tech gimmicks. Would be a shame not to build up these nice AIMS conversions I have at hand...

    More progress - tried to fit the nose gear door and this happened :

     
    Shimmed it up inside the gear bay with some more sprue:

     
    In order to close the gun bay doors I had to cut some excess off the tops of the guns and sand down the insides of the doors:

     
    I've now applied a layer of putty around all of the openings and seams. Sanding tomorrow.

    Finally the Ki-45 Ko/Hei has arrived in Germany. Just a week prior Xmas. Grabbed my copy immediatly:
     

     
    Also got a truly massive russian Bereg SPG from a sale and some nice resin wheels too (on top of the box).
     
    The book is a gift from Santa. This one is really amazing - telling the story of the german armor in the Endkampf for Berlin. Inside is a vast collection of photos from wrecks and abandoned vehicles shortly after the fighting as well as from boneyards and also scrapping right in the streets of Berlin. A map of Berlin showing the location of many of the wrecks in the streets - and there are QR codes connected to Google Streets showing you the locations today! Some eyewitness reports and the stories of different attempted outbreaks too. One unit made it from Berlin to Wittenberg at river Elbe... There are photos of the well known big german cats as well as some really odds and ands: A Mark V Hermaphrodite(!), polish 7TPs and FT-17s, a Panzer I with 7,5cm StuG gun, a Kugelblitz, Pz IV turret strongpoints and at least one Panther F that took part in the fightings (well, with a A/G turret, not the Schmalturm, but nevertheless). Really rare and weird stuff, indeed. I am happy, man! Very happy!

    In addition to the warmth and laughter of good friends and family (not to mention the great chow and snacks), I made out like a bandit this year, gifts wise. Pretty much everything you see here was on my "wants list", so I'm a pretty lucky guy. I also received some cash and gift cards, so promptly ordered some more "stuff" from Amazon, which should be here in a few days.

    Hs-293 is one of the weapons of the Third Reich that became the pioneer of all types of anti-ship guided cruise missiles.
    Using the standard SC-500 aviation bomb with additional wings and tail feathers,
    the Henschel were able to bring this planning bomb
    with a Walter HWK 109-507 rocket booster to mass production
    effective enough to be used against Allied ships,
    17 of which were sunk, and the battleship «Warspite» is among the damaged ships.
    Although the Hs-293 was developed as an anti-ship system,
    there were facts of its use in the destruction of bridges after the landing of the Allies in Normandy.
    The carriers of this system could be the He-111, He-177, Do-217 bombers.
    The model of this planning bomb will be a good addition to your collection,
    and studying its history will reveal interesting facts that are not always on the surface ,since the first work on Hs-293 began back in 1939!

    Very unexpected and not an LSP or even kit related. While visiting a dairy farm with some friends, we ended up taking home an abandoned kitten. The farmer said he'd just shown up about three weeks ago and the barn cats were giving him a hard time. She didn' t think hecwould last too long as a result. So we took him in.
     

     
     
    His name is Sunny and I'd say he's adjusting very nicely to his new home.
