No, you cannot, my friend @airbum!...
Departure for vacations still delayed, so a starting progress:
1. Seats are each a 10 part
affair and are ince
2. Size comparison?
I assembled the seats, consisting of 10 parts each. They look good! Though detail afficionados will opt for PE and resin upgrades. As there are a few decals to be attached y=upon them after painting, I think their look will be very good!
I then assembled the main parts of the cockpit. It too looks very good and quite complete.Some parts of the cockpit, plus the seats, will be left out, to be installed at later phases of the build.
I then trapped the cockpit between the two front fuselage parts.
Fit was good, but not perfect, requiring some microtrimming. Indeed, some flash is observed, especially at more intricate parts. Nothing that my Excel hobby knife and consumed time cannot handle.
1. Reinforcements and some liquefied styrene
Having learned some hard lessons in the past, I reinforced the LONG fuselage joints with inner styrene bits and liquified styrene.
There's nothing more annoying than a cracking joint upon the slightest pressure AFTER painting (and, of course, being impossible to reinforce afterwards from the inside...
This project is big! Just check the 1/48 Shinden behind the cockpit...
