Great interior! I'll look forward to the paint scheme, knowing your past group builds I think it would be spectacular, what ever it will be!

Thank you very much gentleman! A little update: did some metalwork. I used the new Vallejo acrylic metallic colors. I like them a lot, very easy to work with and no unicorns ;-)


The color is burned iron, toned down with diluted flat black, followed by a dark panel line wash and a little dry brushing with steel color.

And started to check some seam lines. Not very exciting but part of the job :-)

As I have not build many models so far my greeblies stash is almost non existent. So I went a little shopping for the cockpit. This is what I got:





All set up to do some cockpit work this weekend :-)

Looks like it's all going to plan Fabian [smile]

Helicopter kits are great for greeblies, especially open framed helis with exposed engines.
1/72nd helis are fairly cheap too, worth buying a few just for the Greeblie box [smile]

Thank you very much guys! Just got a very nice helicopter from Nigel, but I have a feeling I shouldn't use it for spares, lol.

Time for an update :-). Building of the cockpit is done. Wasn't that easy to block the view into the hollow fuselage. A lot of cutting, dry fitting and sanding to get the parts following the rounded shapes of the kit.



Tight fit... but it fits :-)



Thanks for watching ;-)

Hoping for a steady hand for the next step... brushing some details.

Lol I just replied to your comment on mine asking when your next installment is ..
and here it is looking awesome [smile]

Great progress, loving the detail of the cockpit, good use of the PE.
everything looks sensibly arranged,
just like organised chaos should be [biggrin]

And yeah, lifting parts from the Hind would be a bit naughty hey,
although you could take all the bits that the PE will replace ?

Now the 'cockpit' looks quite full and looks very 'realistic', the Luftwaffe cockpit color makes it professional. I wonder what would British cockpit green looked like, perhaps retro.. The original cockpit was very sparse, great improvement!

Hehehe, that work in the cockpit is flipping amazing Fabian !

Already the base colour has tied it all together and made the detail pop. It's going to look very nice indeed once you get the details painted.

Have you finalised a colur scheme yet mate ?

Thanks Thatmas! I thought about using interior green first but decided to go for a modern and clean look... or professional like you say.

Thank you Pete, I'm happy with it so far. Really enjoying putting this kit together... unfortunately my PFEIL is currently on hold because of it. One "big" project at the time ;-).
About the scheme: thinking about a modern Zero version. A light green-grey one, not the black-green. But not decided yet. Will look a lot at the primed model first, so a lot of time before I have to decide ;-)
