Last one for today.
I am putting the finishing touches to the sidewalls and floor. As the work on them is progressing, I will post some photos.

Wow! Truly amazing.

What is the process you use when making those instrument panels with the neat bezels and faces. I assume later you punch the instrument face as a decal?

A closeup of that stunning gunsight would be appreciated! Great work as always.
In he goes! ...even though both of us will cry...

Hi Piet,
I will see what I can do about a clearer photo of the gunsight. My new camera is not that good at taking macro photos.
The dials were made with a punch and die. First, I made the holes, then I made the rings from pieces of tubing thinned and cut with my lathe.
MDC makes instrument decals now.

AWESOME!! One of my favourite aircraft and models of all time getting the Radu treatment! What more could I ask for? That is some spectacular work on the instrument panel Radu. Is this going to be a master by any chance?... :)

I'll be following this build very closely!

If your camera takes RAW images, you will not need to use the Macro facility as you can cut and crop the image to show off the desired area without losing clarity.

Cheers mate,

Jay

Beautiful work and what a subject! I'm going to watch this one. What happened to the Bf109 you were working on?
