Started this while waiting for bits on the Hobby Boss M-4 to dry up, started on the cockpit assembled the rudder pedals added some hexagon rod details to simulate the bolt heads, realise now they will not be seen once assembled oh well.





More will be posted as it happens.

Sometimes it doesn't matter if no one will see it. You know it's there and we can see it here in your build log.  [smile]

I don't think anyone will see some of the extras I've put into my M-103, but I know they're there and I feel better about it.

Really pleased to see you doing a build diary on this one Gary, you will really have a blast with this kit, and I'm looking forward to watching it unfold.
I think we all,at one time or another have added a detail or painted an area that won't ever be seen lol ! But as Mike said you know it's there and also the pictures are there for posterity too

A bit more progress on the Spitfire today, assembled the seat unit, and what a ruddy fiddle that was, as Pete mentioned during his build you need 3 hands, painted with Tamiya interior Green, and the instrument panel with Tamiya X18 semi gloss black, also assembled the excellent PJ Productions pilot figure, a coat of Alclad grey micro primer, and then a light dusting of Tamiya flat black, next will be the instrument dials and controls which I will punch out the individual dials from the kit decal sheet.
That's all for now off to Yeovilton show tomorrow will take some photos and post them up.

























Thanks
Gary

the seat assembly is definitely a three hander lol ! But the rest just falls together mate.
The pilot you have there is beautiful Gary, the details are really nice (the face is full of character)
And it's amazing how just the base colours on the cockpit have already brought the cockpit alive too
It's coming on really well mate, it really is a cracking little kit this

Some progress on the cockpit, added the instrument decals, and added some details to the rudder pedal mechanism, some light dry brushing on the bulk heads just to bring out
the details, and impart some sense of wear. Started to detail the pilot as well using combination of Humbrol and Tamiya paints and Citadel, reasonably happy with how he looks
so far.





















Thanks
Gary

Your pilot looks good Gary. Not bad at all. [smile]

I was right. He really adds that extra something to that cockpit.

Bravo!

The pilot looks great (love the tache) he looks right at home in the cockpit.

Have you seen Revell are just about to release a new tool 1/32 Fw-190 ? I saw some test shot pics and it has a full engine, if they price it as they have there other single engine 1/32 kits it will be another winner
