lockheed L188 Cockpit in 1:12 scale

For anyone following this thread you may want to know something about the materials I use, The information is in Tips and Tricks under Laminating Card and Aluminum foil and my crudely roughed in forward section will be skinned over with it, hiding all my sins. The black windshield dummy will be replaced by eighth inch thick plexiglass, close to scale actually. The aluminum you see on the cockpit roof is not the final finish, which will be white cover paper overall, with rivets laser printed. Inkjet ink lies on the surface, but laser printing burns into the paper so cannot fade. I am planking the sides now, no way to build an airplane but anyone can build a boat, and a hull is a hull whether it floats or flies.
