Hi All

 

Another update and milestone (Update part 1)

 

Using the PE fret I made up the seat harness -man- that was hard on the eyes,

used to have 20/20 vision but after that <_<

 

Added the seat harness

Dry brushed some black on the IP to tone down the white bring out the instruments dial faces,

quite pleased with the results

Added the side console to the pit

Sitting in the fuselage, looks good to me

Dirtied up the tail wheel well- historically, some of the airfields these aircraft flew from

could be quite muddy in Winter and all the fine volcanic soil mixed with water

can create a mess. I recall living in the Hobsonville married quaters on the airfield

perimeter, and watching an RNZAF helecopter come in and sliding along in a spray

of dirty water

Part two to follow in a moment

Cleaned up with some nail polish remover and Q tips

I decided to construct a larger oil cooler to stop see through - not perfect

or accurate but it will do the job

And now the mile stone - the fuselage is glued together :thumbsup:

And finally -(No Wise cracks about the peg colour, it was the first one I grabbed

out of the peg basket :shrug: )

Hope you enjoy

Nice work Alan, the Has. kit is still decent enough and you're doing it justice.

 

I've just closed the fuselage up on something (a rare event for me) and it is a good feeling.

Neat tidy work and I think your updates are great and your work is impressive.. Keep it coming... :punk:
