The cockpit alone is an impressive model. Your sharp, clean cutting is remarkable (and absolutely necessary on a Halinski kit!)

That must be one of the best instrument panels I've seen. Not overstated, instruments come out as if real. This is a pleasure to watch. - L.

Thanks for your comments, and the kind words. I am taking my time with this one - and it has been fun. I have made a bit of progress with one of the cockpit side walls, as you can see here.

Wow........ I'm amazed at the buckle on the rudder pedal straps

The instruments are way cool also.

I agree with Leif. That instrument panel is amazing! Out of curiosity, what parts are included in the Eduard PE set?

Well, the Eduard set has most of the detailed parts for the cockpit interior, including the instrument panel and seat - pretty much any small part that would be near impossible to build and paint by hand. The photos make everything look HUGE, but the cockpit is very, very, very tiny. To truly appreciate it, you almost have to see the model in person. Perhaps I will take some photos with a scale reference next time to give you an idea. Thanks for the comments.

As a soon-to-be unemployed person this is probably just for curiousity sake, but where would one go about finding information on Eduard's photo-etch kits for Halinski's?
And cockpit is looking excellent.

Funny you should ask, Dan. I was just Googling 'Eduard'. Looks like most hobby shops only carry bits and pieces of the Eduard line, but apparently you can buy direct from Eduard as well. But be prepared to fork over an arm and a leg -- the Hayate interior, for example, is US$24.95. Ouch! Very pretty, though.
