Haha  its not that bad, but those number 11 blades are really sharp. you dont feel the cut,  just see the blood.
Anyway i started detailling and love to get some feedback.




sidepanel with fuse board



front office





The back of the cockpit, upside down



This is my first time i do resin, and as much as i love the detail as much headache i have. The dtail is so small that i cannot see
it with my reading glasses to detail it. The problem with detailing it under a magnifying glass is, you dont know how far away you are with your brush
from the part. This was the most exhausting and nervwrecking modelling i did so far. No complain, i am satisfied.

Hi Thomas,

that control panel looks very good. It doesn't seem this is the first time you work with resins. I like it, and the aircraft is quite strange too.

Good luck.

PD: I know it is easier to say than to do it, however, try to look at through the magnifying glass with the two eyes together, that will give you depth field again, and of course, look at far things (focus in a distant object) from time to time to rest your eyes.

That's a great tip Miguel, I'll remember that when I get a magnifier because I can definitely empathise with Thomas's predicament.
Your detail work is fantastic Thomas! A very nice job on the cockpit panels. Painting down to that precise level takes steady breathing and patience.
It's going to pay off big time. [smile]

That is some very nice brush work going on there.

Thanks guys, It is the first time with resin and it took me hours after hours.Unfotunately you cannot see how much i had to correct. i found out, that if you make a mistake and have a cocktail stick and cotton bud on standby, you can immediatly wipe of the mistake and start over. i would have to video it until i make a mistake. thinking about it, it shouldnt be a long video then. LOL

this aircraft is very interesting and I think you are doing a great job with the aftermarket. I wear strong reading glasses and magnifying goggles on top of them. I have a heavy wooden block covered with material to raise small parts "up" to my view. Artists that paint at an easel use a stick to rest the brush hand on for details. Some modelers have a block or armrest to help steady the brush hand. I sometimes just put my left hand on a soft towel under my right hand or wrist as I paint. anything I can think of to "brace" that tiny brush, pin, or toothpick. then I still goof up! LOL

Hello guys, I finally got some Benchtime and went on put the Cockpit together. I used AK dark grey panelline wash to give it some life.
Drybrushed with ak light grey, and a silver pencil. Let me know what you think.

Seatcushion  was painted with Tamiya xf4 and xf 60 mix and some left over green i dont remember what. seatbelts painted with ak radome tan and weathered wit Flory dark wash.



Cockpit glued together





one Armrest is missing. It took me  two hours crawling on the floor with a Flashlight. But i got it







I get somemore Benchtime tonight and will work on the Wheelwells. Everything needs to be glued togehter and the painted before the two fuselage halfs can be put together.
