After about six trys l finally got a rear seat the l was happy with in size and shape. l first cut out the shape for the seat on some styrene sheet then l got the thinnist strip styrene l could get both in width and thickness. Then like the real thing l wove the pattern together glueing eveything as l go. Once done l then glued that to the basic styrene shape l had cut out. When dried l trimmed and sanded the edges. l then took stryene rod and glued it to the outside edge for the framing and ta da one rear seat.

You're a scratchbuilding champ Hacker. Like I said 'I LOVE' the seat. You must have taken that course in Swahili Basket weaving. Keep up the great work dude.

Well both are just about ready for paint. The C-4B will have RLM 02 cockpit colour as its an early machine while the G-4 will have the late RLM 66 interior colour. Just a couple of more things to do and we off to the painting

 

later

shifted gears here as somtimes you need to put down one part of a build and move to something else. decided to tackle the noses armament.

Both representation of the nose armament is what can l say pitiful. The C-4B is the worst, picture is a thousand words

started the G-4 gun deck. now both C-4 and the G-4 basically suppose to have the decks flush with the top of the faring. In the G-4 case its so but in the C-4 is it lowered so l have to fix that. Meanwhile l need to modify the G-4 like its suppose to look like.

once l got the styrene glued to the sides ready for detaling l cut the front off as there was no deck that far up. l made a bulkhead for the lower part and now its more like it should be

Here is what l got so far for G-4 nose armament. the guns are there for looks at the moment as l need to make chutes for the feed and shells. The cannons had to be stagard like in the real thing so the chutes could work. The air bottles are added and l still have to wire and put in the hoses lines for the compressed air. The Revell Mk 108 cannons are a good representation of the armament and the work on this nose is easy but the C-4 is a whole nother matter which l am dealing with at the moment. once l get those sorted out l will post the work on them

 

so later dudes
