Of course Ray you will be able to see the pictures while I'll try to make something decent with this kit. [smile][smile]

Nice looking kit, good that you have the doors open option to show off that interior detail more.

The first interior instructions look a bit vague but I'm sure it'll become obvious as you assemble the parts.

Russian trucks are not finished.. but they can wait for a moment. Couldn't wait to begin the C-47 Skytrain. 

I experimented a lot on this kit.. Just wanted to have fun even if it could potentialy ruin the build. 

By the way I spilled all my Tamiya cement on the floor... Knew it would happen ... was just a matter of time. 

These ones should stay on the bench.. [biggrin][biggrin][biggrin][biggrin]

Here are some pictures of the cockpit and the cabin... Need to be cleaned at some places however. 

Ah yes, I have lost the two control columns... but not the steering wheels. I used two wipers from an old kit I had and used them to replace the control columns [rofl][rofl][tongue][tongue], then I glued the two steering wheels. It did the job.

Now I tried something on the fuselage... Whit my knife, I scraped all the panels to make a stress skin effect. Followed my intuition. At some places I think I went far too heavy and at other places the effect is almost visible. Took plenty of time to realise this and some rivets are gone in the process. Rescribed the lines around the ailerons and the engine intakes. Add some styrene on the engine (had no brass wires) to give some dept. Not sure of the final result but spent some good time. Here are some other pictures.

fThought I would be able start painting this afternoon, but after adding the PE and find a solution to replace the control columns it was too late to begin. Maybe tomorrow.

Thanks for watching.

Thank you so much, this is my first attempt so it's very uneven. But once started, you can not stop until all the fuselage is done. I have a lot of respect for aircraft modelers ... I used a lot of sanding paper [eek][eek][eek]

My solution to tipping Tamiya ET was to purchase this:

https://www.pmmodelsuk.com/work-stations-and-paint-racks/a2-work-station

Along with this

https://www.pmmodelsuk.com/work-stations-and-paint-racks/tool-caddy

Hopefully with these two items my glue should be safe at all times, the caddy doesn't show it, but has holes drilled for Micro sol, set and Crystal Klear. Those last 3 are always sat there waiting to tip over.

I'd never thought of Tamiya ET spilling, yet it did. The Micro products I always expected to tip, yet I have never done. Sods law can be a biatch sometimes

WHAOUW.... so nice !!! Such a clean work space helps a lot to keep motivated. Sometimes I don't have the mood getting started just because of my messed up work bench. This inspires me a lot. Thank you so much Keith.

I dread to ask, sounds like self abuse..............I can't wait to play with 2k clears with my airbrush..so can understand where you're coming from.

Having a cluttered work space was a big problem for me, hopefully its over now
