Being getting the interior, and mostly the crew done up for the Kate. The Pilot and Observer are finished other than a wash to give some depth to their features. The Pilot is from a PJ Productions set of 2 Japanese pilots, the Observer is from the kit
What you might ask is that blob of blue tack on the gunners seat. First I cut and folded the back down on the gunners seat so he could face backwards. The blue tack is so I can experiment with his position once I put his MG in his hands.
I’m still touching up his paint but here he is ready to fend off Cdr’s Thach’s F4F-4.
He is the other PJ Productions Pilot, originally in the same pose as the front seater. I cut
the right arm away from the body and repositioned as you see.
And here’s a quick look at how they will look in the fuselage.
