The cockpit have on the side wall a lining of cloth no it isn't the same color as the steel so I have made it a little diffrend by adding some blue now maybe it looks to muche when the cockpit closes it will tone down fast in the dark and afther some weathering.

Need to leave that for a day so I can use the tape to spray the black control surfage and hope to use the stamp to get easy lots of sharp detail.
have fun maybe more today on the landing gear.

If in any change you think a special detail needs attention just show me I will be gratefull

Legends Productions of Korea currently have the most accurate SJU-17 NACES seats available in 1/32 scale. You'll need to add the canopy piercers though.

the main U/C bays are MUCH better than the tamiya ones I've spent too much time adding detail the main wheel wells on the tamiya kits to want to do that again , to be accurate , you need to add a LOt of additional detail into the wheel wells , but they are a much better starting point that the Tamiya model

The main legs again look a little simplified , but perfectly usable , just the addition of some hydralic lines, and plates from the Eduard set is all you need ..

I can't wait for mine - keeps the pics coming!
