That headrest looks very authentic, much better than the kit part.

I find your crisp detailing very impressive!

 

Thanks everyone, I appreciate it. Definitely feel the headrest looks better with the stretched sprue added as well. Plus, it looks better than the rectangular headrest, IMHO.

 

Progress may slow even more now. My wife found a much faster route down the stairs yesterday and broke her wrist, so bench time may be limited to short spurts. She may need surgery to repair, so time spent away from the bench (and work) will be at an ortho surgeon's office! For now, I've started on the glass on the instrument cowl as well as painting it with MM Interior Black. Montex masks made short work of protecting the clear areas and were much nicer than cutting out the Tamiya masks. I plan to also spray some Tamiya NATO black to replicate the rubber bumper edge that I see in pictures......

 

Pictures.....tomorrow? We'll see! Hopefully some time to spend in the hobby room!
