Tamiya's big Spit

Recommended Posts

Here's my efforts on the cockpit assembly. The IP is the kit item modified to accept Airscale instrument decals. This involved eliminating the use of Tamiya's clear bits as I felt they were too thick and made the instrument dials look like you were looking at them through the bottom of a glass coke bottle. I used Roy Sutherland's detail bits from Barracudacast, primarily the interior detail set and the seat. The seatbelts were from RB productions and like BarracudaCast's resin, highly recommended. I scratch-built the rudder cables and all the plumbing on the sidewalls as shown and the instruments on the center blind flying panel recieved scratch-built instrument bezels made out of fine copper wire. I also used some elements from Eduard's interior detail set, some placards from Waldron Model Products and some home made data stencils as well. I have since closed up the fuselage and attached the wings but to keep from exceeding my bandwidth, I'll post photos of that later.

 

Cheers,

Wolf

Superb work Wolf. I've got some of the Barracudacast bits for mine, same as you and also the rocker covers and replacement bulges. Looking forward to more.
