I had some nice bench time and finished the cockpit. The kit is, as expected, very nice. Nothing to tell about honestly, it's all good so far. The gunsight is missin on the pics.

Looks Great Fabian! That seat really turned out nice!

Question, What paint did you use on the belts? I just cant seem to get it right when I try to paint them!

Of course Neil, as far as I can tell it's a great kit. I can just imagine how great they're 1/32 must be :-)

Thank you Paul. The cockpit turned out a little more dirty than I'm intended but I think it's okay.

Thanks Ted. Looking forward to see the hole fleet of Corsairs being built. Is someone up for the 1/32? Anyone? ;-)

Thanks Dave. I painted the seat belts with Vallejo model color 70.847 dark sand, mixed with a little 70.825 German cam. pale brown for the shadows.

To be honest, I don't think so ... apparently these warbirds were very dirty. Apart from keeping them in the air, I can imagine they wouldn't have cared a lot about 'cleanliness'.

Again, brilliant work.

Looking good Fabian,

I think the cockpit looks fine mate, i know that everyone has their own approach and taste regarding the finish of models and what is considered "realistic" but for me I belive that a little over emphasis and artistic license is required to make things stand out in the small confines of a models cockpit.
Models don't react to light in the same way that the full size things do so using weathering does help to add some scale and a sense of realism.

At the end of the day though all that matters is that you are happy with the results mate, build for your own pleasure and you can't go wrong

Yeah, it's a little like theater in this regard, creating and illusion or impression of scale and detail.
Light definitely is effected by the scale effect as the atoms and wavelengths remain the same size whilst the scale shrinks. Radiosity and shadow falloff ranges enlarge relative to the smaller scales as does edge roll off where light plays around the edges of the model hence natural shadows and highlights diminish with reduced scale hence the need to accentuate these features more with reducing scales of models etc. which is why your cockpit looks so good as you have accentuated everything harmoniously for the scale you are making [smile]
