Once I get my momentum going I can build pretty quickly, but i can see I have got a mountain to climb with the cockpit, there are literally hundreds of parts to go into it (not including the etch) it's one of the best cockpits I Have ever seen in any plastic kit it doesn't look like Revell left out a single detail, I reckon it's a couple of weeks work on this alone Pete



Really?? That's really saying something. Looking forward to seeing the end result. [smile]

Looking really good Pete.  Would you mind telling me how you did the chipping on the bomb site please?

Regards

Chris

Honestly mate the cockpit is amazing, easily the most complex I've seen on any kit, the etch wouldn't be needed to build a really nice cockpit, but it will definitely enhance what Revell give you

Cheers Chris,

The chipping is just a really sharp 8b pencil followed by a matt coat to seal the graphite, when you put it on it doesn't look dark enough, but turns almost black under the matt varnish

I've been working on one of the cockpit sidewalls today
The bit of copper wire is to replace a lever I managed to ping out of the tweezers, I didnt even hear it land, so didn't bother to look for it
I glued the unpainted etch on first

And after adding coloured etch a wash and weathering , the chips and scratches look a little odd at this magnification, but the effect looks fine to the naked eye

There are still more parts to add to this, but I will paint and weather them before the go on

Cheers mate, I think my weathering is a little heavy, but I realise this is just my style, so I'm not going to worry too much, I just need to learn to use a lighter touch

It's funny you mentioned a step by step, as I have done them in some of my other build threads, but I felt that my threads are too long and might be a bit much, so I decided that I wouldn't go into as much depth on this one, just so I don't bore everyone to death lol !

If you want I will do a step by step on the other side wall

20150204_173505 by brundledonk, on Flickr

The radio gear is really nice out of the box, the details would paint up lovely I reckon

But the Eduard etch adds detail I could never achieve with a brush

Still tons of work to do on the cockpit, there are 30 seperate stages on this alone, and hundreds of parts, it is a bunch of sub assemblies that build up and come together, I'm hoping to make some decent progress tomorrow, so with a bit of luck these parts will make a bit more sense
