Been a while hasn't it....
 
Must be about time that I show some progress.  
 
First up is to play with the fuselage.  Had to try to figure out first where the cuts would have to be.

The next step is to remove the interior detail from the fuselage interior.

Now the fun begins.
 
The interior begins with the addition of styrene strips to simulate the interior smaller vertical framing and the horizontal stringers.

This is the first part of this.  
 
Next up will be to begin the deconstruction and construction of the details.

Part two of the update.
 
Beginning working on the kit details was to remove them.
 
This is what the kit has.

Then the reconstruction began.  First up is a little work on the cockpit. 
 
Looking at the seat there is something missing.  On the right is the kit seat and on the right my version.

Some additional of what little I have accomplished.

I did also play a bit with the wing area as this section will be visible.
 
Beginning with the inner space between the wings.

And then moving on to some of the smaller details, bounced around quite a bit at this point.

I also began to construct the radio set.

More updates hopefully soon.

Looking good, this sort of build appeals to my OCD, can I ask what you're using for reference material?

...and pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in Space cos there's bugger all down here on Earth!

You are all very kind.

 

I am using the Walk Around from Squadron as well as the Detail in Scale.  To supplement I have done a number of searches both general and part specific on Google.

Brilliant! This is going to be epic!
I'm hooked already. The pilot and co-pilot seats are simply amazing, as are the rest of your scratch build items...

Pretty ambitious project you've got going here. I'll be eventually (already started it, in fact) doing the same/similar thing, but with the Monogram B-17, using all of the True Details guts, and a ton of P.E. that I got from a fellow mod.


Kevin

I was going to procrastinate tonight, but decided to wait.

 

In Progress:

Wow that's remarkable! I am always so impressed by people who do extensive scratch building like this. I feel proud of myself for scratching up some wiring or control cables in the cockpit, and then I see work like this...

Can I ask what size strips you are using for the stringers and framing? I'd like to someday do something like this with a B-17 or B-24

You are all very kind.  Many many thanks.

 

 

Bstarr I have used so far .015 to .120x.375 strips for the shapes.  I have also used .010 up to 3/64 rod.  Many other bits and pieces that I gathered from the scrap boxes that I keep as well.
