A little work done today: Some detail added to the starboard console

Per my references, there are some sizable braided sheath cables that enter this console. I tried some 0.040 diameter solder -it was too big. I ended up using 0.023 diameter copper.

To mimic the braid, I laid a good file at 45 degrees to the wire. Pressing down hard, I rolled the wire under the file .

It's tough to see in this photo, but I got some decent, but subtle texture on the wire. I then filled the file to 45 degrees in the opposite direction. Once installed, it looks like this. I'll give the wires a silver metallic finish, the a wash to show detail.

I think it's time to remove the fuselage half and tape the port side in place.
