Looking at these pics has given me an idea.  There's not much aftermarket stuff for my G8N available, and nothing for the interior, which is a bit spartan, kit-wise.  But I'm thinking, some of this stuff could be adapted to suit, particularly things like the seats.  Even the instrument panel could be made to look almost correct.  There's almost no research pics about on the net, so even the most ardent rivet-counter would have a job telling them apart!

Good idea, you can set the new reference standard like this, lol. I had the same issue with my Betty build. Very hard to find reference pictures of these amazing Japanese bomber. Luckily I found a small PE set by Eduard. For the rest I did some scratch building to liven up the interior. Here’s a link to the WIP: http://genessis-models.websitetoolbox.com/post/mitsubishi-g4m1-betty-tamiya-148-7288113?&trail=15

I will check my B-17 PE sets tomorrow to see which set you could use. Is that okay?

I already have your Betty build thread saved in my favourites, ready for when I build my own!  And yes, that would be great, thank you.

Haha, don't look to close at the details. I'm definitely no rivet counter [wink]

I had a look at the PE sets. I think the interior set is the one you could use. It has some nice Instrument panels and two seats. You could also get the seat belts, but I think Eduard has one with Japanese ones.
Here are the pictures of the instructions and a detail of the IP. Hope this helps.

Edit: sorry, seems like I can't post pictures right now. I will try again tomorrow.

Thanks for that, greatly appreciated!  By coincidence I was just looking around at what's available, and these seem to be pretty nice, too.

Priced a bit cheaper than the Eduard stuff, though Eduard, I know, are good quality, and I have not used this company yet.  Without looking in the kit box again, I think the flight deck has four seats, to the B-17's two, so the price has to be born in mind.  Still, I have a little time left to make my mind up which set to go for.

Hi Fabian. Hope you're fine. You really make a FABULOUS work... and your pictures are so great too...As you say, some details will be hiden when the model will be assembled, but like you I'm according importance to it. Like when buiding tanks interior, it may seem stupid, but buiding a empty tank looks a liitle bit strange to me, even if nobody can see it. 😊😊

Actually I think all of it will be hidden, the glasswork is tiny... but I don’t care and peacefully keep working on the interior. I will make some pictures to share before I hide everything in the fuselage to proof it’s there, lol 😂

Fabion,

You'll know its there and we've all seen your excellent PE work, so we'll know.

My Liberator has sliding windows on side of canopy. I'm thinking of removing the clear polystyrene so displaying with the glass slid back and window open.

Should give some clear view of the interior of the cockpit.

Just an idea that may work for you, the windows probobly would be open when on the ground?

Hi Keith,

Good idea but as far as I can see on reference pictures the windows of the Fortress are closed. Anyhow, they are glued in already.

Just a small update on the Fortress. Slowly working my way through the interior. Basic paint and all the colored PE is in place and everything is ready for a gloss coat. Next step is some weathering and using oil paints to imitate the wood structure. Here are some pictures...
