Had a bit of another holdup, one of the main photoetch panels on the cockpit (the one just on the right of the joystick) decided to ping itself into oblivion.

luckily I had taken a photo of the photoetch (displayed above in thread #11), I loaded it into photoshop, zoomed into the bit I had lost and remade it, copying it 7 times and scaling it up in 10% increments, I then printed it out on glossy paper and matched one to the hole in my photoetch sproo.

I then cut it out and stuck it on. It made a pretty good replacement, looking at it under magnification I can't tell which one I replaced and I know which one it was, so I'm happy [biggrin]

Ok the cockpit is ready to assemble. Remember this is a 1/72 these are cm's marked off in green so It's pretty small [smile]

@Ted, this is my first Ever PE, this stuff just wasn't around for aircraft kits 20 odd years ago, It's surprisingly satisfying doing PE work, although It Is Incredibly fiddly [wink]


The cockpit assembled and inserted into airframe

[side1] 
Unfortunately because the cockpit wasn't designed for this particular model I had to take my saw to the airframe to get it to fit
[fit] 
Next job is to fill the holes, sand and make it look like it was designed for this kit [smile]

starting the filling process
[filler1] 
some more filler
[filler2] 
sanding, filling and polishing
[filler3] 
I need to do a bit of work around the cockpit, try put something over it so It's protected, I damaged the ejector seat photoetch, had to carefully re-glue it on, very lucky I saw it..

Taken the Ejector seat out of the cockpit, I'll put it back in when the build is nearly done, or when the painting is.

ok, latest update:-

during assembly I noticed this:-
[exhaust1]
I know this isn't an expensive kit but that looks awful. so I tried to just drill it out
[exhaust2]
Looks better but still not very good, time to start scratch building...

First I tried using the pen end:-
[exhaust3]
I sawed it off flush then tried to thin the plastic, but its that soft plastic that's a pain to work,
after a while I decided to try something else, looking down it was there staring me in the face...
[exhaust4]
It needs a little more work,
looking at reference photo's you can't see very far into the exhausts so here's my scratch build:-
[exhaust5]
Time to get the punch out...

[exhaust6]
during the assembly, I don't worry about sticky out bits till it comes to final assembly

[exhaust7]
To say its 2 pen tops and a few bits of styrene sheet It doesn't look too bad [smile]

Ok time for another dry assembly test.
[test2]
everything is held in place with white tac. I wasn't happy with the flow of the superglue on the engine so I scraped it off,
It still needs more pluming but it's getting there [biggrin]

Ok after another day or so, filling filing, attempted to mend the removal of the raised panel lines,
I'm not going to re-scribe the whole kit after all it's only a bit of fun It doesn't have to be perfect
[assembly]
