    Now you have made such a small cockpit look busy without looking splodged and overdone. Terrific work so far Peter.

    Done a bit more and as I will not be putting the seats in as they won't be seen as this will be a sewn up kit here's the pics.
    Plus I have finished the front landing gear P1030683.JPG P1030684.JPG P1030685.JPG P1030686.JPG

    Decided on a change of plan as in will have the interior on show so I have spent the afternoon unpicking and repainting and painting all the seats and adding more detail. P1030727.JPG P1030728.JPG P1030729.JPG
