  3. 1/32 Tamiya Mosquito Cockpit is finished

Progress on the . The cockpit is about 80% complete. All that's left is the navigator's seat and seatbelts, and some touch-ups here and there. I used RAF Interior Green from Mission Models. Small details (buttons, etc.) are Vallejo acrylics. I bought this kit on ebay and the seller included an instrument panel set from Yahu. I tlike the way it was printed. Not as "grainy as Eduard's panels. These have a smooth, almost photographic glossy finish that I had to tone down with a little matte spray.

  1. George, as usual, your detailing is superb!

  2. Coming along VERY nicely, George...will be watching along the entire way.

  3. if all the rest is like this, it will be a model awarded at an exhibition!

  5. Nice cockpit! Like the cables on the backside of the instrument panel. Feel like strapping into the seat. Will it be a night fighter?

  6. Thanks, all. I'm hoping to build it as a half wood, half well worn camo example. I'm not weathering the cockpit very much in order to make it part of the factory fresh side of things.
