I see in episode 2 that you are putting the cockpit together but haven't painted anything.  Are you not painting this model or do you have some sort of magic for doing it later?

The resin cockpit is a solid tub. The cowling ,seat, and instrument panel are separate pieces. Bob will have to paint the tub and use washes and filters to define details. Perhaps he will pick out more details with cocktail sticks, brushes, dry brush, etc. maybe a bit more tedious but that is the "cost" of using the resin cockpit parts. I'm sure is is going to amaze us with the finish on the cockpit. Nothing glued in place yet ( i don't think??) in regards to cockpit.

In episode 4 he glues the tub in.  Not the front consul mind you, so I'm guessing there's some voodoo he can use or maybe there is enough room to paint it in place.  I haven't received my kit yet to check it myself, nor have I had time to listen to the entire episode so I'm probably missing something.

Just trying to get ahead of the ordering.  Would this weathering set be a probable goto for this model?

Seems like that weathering set would be perfect. Ammo has a reputation for their accuracy and quality. I would choose that set but I’m no expert.

Just watched episodes 17 & 18. Very nice "short" episodes letting us in on detailing the cockpit/ejection seat.

I have an active subscription but I'm not able to view videos 22 and beyond?  They don't appear on page 3.

Page 1 has episodes 1-10
Page 2 has episodes 11-21
Page 3 has episode 22 and that is all for now

Some don’t know that when Bob starts these builds,
I believe he has already finished the build and knows exactly how many episodes were made. He establishes the pages and indicates the number of episodes for that page although all of the episodes are not actually posted on that page yet. Hope that made sense? If not I will have a go at it again.

Yes. Definitely. Scared me the first time I saw a “page” with X number of episodes (videos) listed and they were not all there! Now we all know exactly how many videos are left in the series. Everything will be there. It’s a great aircraft and Bob is going to get a fantastic result for us to see.
