once that was done I knew the spatial confines for the next console.

Lots of scratch building but I was able to modify and reuse some parts of the kit detail..granted very little

at this point my wife asked...."so this whole thing will be orange and green?"..she's not too far off but of course I said no there's a lot more to go!

Thank you everyone :)

 

RNoAF, good question. My brother in law got this one for me on Craigslist for $5, I would check Ebay as it is no longer in production.

Im pretty sure you can get the Hasegawa 1/32 version still.

Started laying out the floor and firewall last night to determine locations for sidewall details and what will be seen.

I need to detail the back of the firewall since you can get a glimpse of it looking forward.

 

I got the "bungee cord" for the seat completed and will get the belts done too.

Added some gizmology to the black boxes in the cockpit and finished the weathering.

 

Pics soon.
