Look what came in the mail today from Sprue bros. Live resin 240's and Eduard photo etch. Have started small work on cockpit sanded doors clean made the cyclic out of strip and rod kit piece is anorexic. Made the MFD backs from strip laminated together and added small strip for the cooling vents on the sides. The collectives in the kit are wrong only the copilot is thicker. The pilots has a shaft from the grip back to the back so will make that with rod. Made the correct mod to the sides of the glare shield by cutting part of the side off. A thin piece of sheet will be put in place and the tail pedal adjustment handle will go there.

Sanded the tail rotor pedal boots off since they are very bad looking and going to replace with glue soaked tissue paper cut to size.  Cut out the avionics recesses under the pilots seats and lined with strip will again cover with tissue paper since not much is visible underneath.  Used the Eduard cockpit as a guide for the holes and cleaned up with sanding sticks.  Made the door edges with strip and will glue the Eduard piece to that to give it the proper depth of the inner door.  Also cut out very carefully the inner parts of the Eduard door with a sharp blade and ruler.
