It´s a long way to Mukumbura...
My dad´s next project, soon to be started, using the good old Academy kit with Xtradecals
gonna do the lower scheme

Nice entry, @grimreaper!
Love the chosen scheme!
Looking forward to this build, Reinhard @grimreaper
A not so often seen scheme from the Rhodesian Air Force.
was looking through our aftermarket stuff stash for a Quickboost seat I bought some time ago, when my dad told me he found a full True Details cockpit for the Hunter in another stash
so let´s see how that turns out...

The tru details cockpit looks wonderful, my friend @grimreaper! If I recall well, it is stated that the Academy cockpit is undersized, so the True Details cockpit should take care of things.
Those are greatly detailed parts, Reinhard @grimreaper
Defintely a nice addition.
so, finally enough free space to start this project
testfitted the resin cockpit into the fuselage, fit is good
the right sidewall is an extra part, the rest of the cockpit tub is in one piece
Love the resin looks into the interior, @grimreaper!
The resin part gives some nice extras to the cockpit, Reinhard @grimreaper
resin parts primed, ready for paint
Looking forward to this, Reinhard. I have that kit to do in Rhodesian colors as well. I’ll be following along.
Nice progress, my friend @grimreaper!
Very nice, Reinhard @grimreaper
already painted all the cockpit parts black
but although my dad washed/degreased and primed the resin, the paint was removed when he started to drybrush the instruments and touched the parts too much
also the CA glue didn´t connect well with the resin
my dad decided to use the cockpit tub and IB from the kit, sidewall panels and seat from True Details
washed the resin parts again, for now the paint and CA glue holds
