Cockpit and fuselage gets some really NOT necessary details
– but nice ones I think.
Now, the basic eduard has a lot to offer, but in this build it is planned to leave some of the windows open, and all the glass on the canopy will be clear panels from acetate, so the details must be convincing for the nerd!
First up, the standard etch is used, along with quickboost and Löök extras
Ready for first round of RLM 66
Löök mom – no hands.
1. testfitting fuelline
With the Löök dashboard installed, here is a look at the fitted well. Eduard wants you to install this on the other wall, but to protect the instruments and ease installation of the fuel-line, I prefer the left wall. That makes it so much easier to get the fuel in place. And the spring that holds the plate on the footstep seems to be ready for replacement as the hatch is not entirely closed.
The fuel-line has two small tabs that need to fit into the curcuitbraker panel, failing to do so makes it look like it is in mid-air, and so, deviating from instructions, it is glued to the wall
1. Acrylic marker
2. Valejo acrylic needs cleanup
Sits just right when the fuselage is assembled.
The plane has straight pedals, but has been pushed aroung for parking, and so the tailwheel is placed at an angle.
This is achieved by carving the ends of the four locating pins.
1. edges cut off on all 4 tabs
2. both ends are cut to place it in the right place after assembly!
Next time some more assembly, perhaps more detailing?. Comments are welcome
