Hi yes Finally not realy need to do some work on the Thud and Ki44 still that come a lomg nicely so I start whit this kit.
I did see a topic on ARC and it turns out in a real funny topic I will stop here.

No not yet I like to make a work horse used look like the wolf head must say al the markings look good on this beast :)

First job the seat's they come on there own frame and the extra pillow realy nice.
The yellow arrow yes a very special windowspaint version pointing to the handel
Did thin down so it will look more life like maybe I will change the top pillow's in cloth.

Hi did the seat's on the top left site there is some detail missing so I used some rod and cabel to let it look a bit buzzy the painting is just the main colors wil do the details a bit later when the seat belts come on.

The seat is a bit special I think hard time finding extra info becose of the spikes on top of the seat these I think are only on the Tomcat version present and I have to try to make little decals for on the headrest of the seat.
