Default Re: 1/72 Matchbox Lancaster

Okay, so the IP is just about done. And am I glad, cause those tiny levers were a pain! In fact, all but the throttle levers are thin wire. The ins would have you feed the u-bent PE levers in from the back, but that was a frustration and a half, so I just fed the wire levers in from the front.

Next are some scratch built rudder pedals and then that will be fin!




I also cut up the kits pilot seat to better match the Airfix part used as a template. I cut the sides down to increase the height of the head armor, and used a saw to separate the arm rests from the seat, as well as cut them back.
Tamiya tape is being used for the cushion.



And the cockpit before weathering and final assembly.






And now I remember, I need to fab the jump seat and the back rest!
