First two masters I have on the table. As I expected their surface is rough. I will put some layers of filler and prepare molds.

Side panels are also dry. Thinking about some more layers of filler. I still see some roughness.

Detailing of seat sides panels continue. Added the mounting. I will have to replace the inner rivets, they are too big.

Under the base paint are not the rivets very visible, thinking about glue rivets or put another layer of the foil. What are your opininons?

Wow, I expected, that I would find there someone with experience with scale warbirds detailing. It seems, that nobody here worked on such small details.

I spent another evening and morning in workshop. Some rivets added, but not all of them.
Now you can learn how to make small details. Because small details make big differents.

I forgot to inform you about the seat mounting and share some pictures. Well, resin mounting is done and I am satisfied with the result. I am glad to say, that another part of the cockpit kit is done.
