Pits, seats and Fall brews
Started plugging away at the Academy Phantom. I am using the Eduard self adhesive PE interior set, and a combination of Brassin and Wolfpack seats. The Eduard set is very nice, and speeds up the process of correcting some of the areas Academy did not quite get right. The instrument panels are amazing! As for the seats, I wanted to use Eduard’s Brassin Martin Baker seats, but as I am planning a 1966 – 1968 bird I needed Mk5 seats Eduard’s are Mk7s. The solution? Wolkpack makes a set of nice resin Mk5s, but the molded on detail is not as nice as Eduard’s separate pieces. So I cut the Mk5 headrests off of the Wolfpack sanded off the unwanted details and spliced them onto the Eduard seats. Researching showed there are many, many variations of the Mk5 seat, but I found pictures that show the configuration I have made. As for brews it is starting to be Fall, and with that comes all manner of Oktoberfest beers. I think Sam Adams makes one of the best, so that is the brew for this week!
