OMG.

 

Wow, that does look really nice.

 

And as others have pointed out, a nice variation in colours. Much more so than my rather bland -1 cockpits.

 

The cockpit is really the big "Time Suck" of the build. Since you have the engine done , i'd imagine the build will really pick up a full head of steam now.

 

Will you make it to Seattle.... just to hobnob with the rest of us??

All the best, cheers,

Peter

Amazing work Wolf, but since I'm fairly new to modeling after a 20 year hiatus, where do you find all these detail pieces? The tiny lead wire, resin rivets and bolts, placards and such? I read these threads and just get lost.

A company called legend from Korea makes nuts and bolts in resin. Archer makes rivets and if you need real fine lead wire look at your local fly fishing tackle shop
