Well, I went and did it, I decided on the tan.

I took Glenn's advice and my wife's.

Totally delighted with this decision.

Now I can start assembling and gluing the remaining parts.

I started this jet cockpit back in 2004. It was to be used in another model, the C-101 Aviojet. I actually trashed the fuselage, but kept the foam sheeted wing. The wing is useable and the cockpit is worth finishing.

I hope to design a model around some day.

As it looked a few years ago.

I guess it depends on the photo, but possibly more on the project. Models that are finished get high photo hits quickly.

Still gotta get the thing done. Plastic display case with an oak bottom and a brass plaque.  Grin

Doug,

Hey! Hey!

I gotta digest this, I actually got a reply.  Layingdown 

It's really taking shape, but it's on the sideline right now, I'm on another project.

I have progression photos taken during the build.

I need to reduce the DPI's and size to Post. So I'm putting them up little at a time.

I don't have many left.

Thanks for the reply.

Two more eject handles. Painted yellow then wrapped with flat black HP vinyl. Tad of CA at each end to hold it in place.

Glenn,

Hey! Hey!

Glenn, my only Poster! 

I could never work on something like this without taking a brake every 35 minutes or so.

Bit by bit and it gets done.

Thanks for the reply.

Hey! Hey!

Glenn my only poster.

I used toothbrush tips for running lights on the Stuka Tank Buster. I didn't invent it, scale guys know this. 

That green thing is a cut toothbrush, shaped and polished. There's a red one on the other side.

Thanks for the reply.

Recent completed work on the Jet Cockpit.

This time seat cushions. Seat cushions are popular with jet pilots and there are many types available.

These two pieces will be 5 minute Epoxied in place.

I have a lead on a Plexi-box to display the Jet Cockpit in. I hope it pans out?

The more stuff you add to a scale item, the better it looks, even with Playful scale.

Makes the item more interesting and adds color.

This cockpit is not micro-scale, it's 16" x 4" and 3.5" deep.

I have a place where I can display it where the wife won't mind. Inside the dresser draw.
