Geez, you're a mad man ... absolutely brilliantly done times two! I am in compete awe of how much detail work you lavished on the B-25's. ... way beyond my abilities for sure.
Keep 'em comin

Thanks Peter!

I don't think I would have tried adding all this detail if it wasn't for the other B-25 builds going on at the same time.

I think the same could be said for you too Martin. It was to talk to you last week too.

I finally did a bit of work on the cockpits. I started with the one for Betty's Dream.

I have to say that the layout of the PE levers doesn't quite match the photos I have. Plus they're a right pain to put together.

I also assembled the HGW belts for the pilot's seats.

Finally, with the seats installed.

Now onto finishing the console for French Kiss.

Beautiful work Carl! Did you have to paint over the Eduard cockpit photoetch, or did they do a good job matching the color?

Cheers, tom

Carl,

I admire your fortitude with the HGW seatbelts, one set of belts got me running to the single malt, can’t imaging doing two sets... and everything looks absolutely great. I realized this week-end after glueing the nose how much présence this model has, having two side by side in the display cabinet will be something.

Cheers,

David

Very nice work on the beginnings of both front offices - PE work and seat belts surely look spot on.

Really nice work. The cockpit looks really nice and I like that both seats are the same size! Just remember to add the same armor plate behind the co pilots seat as the pilot.
