Well, well, well, I see that there is no lack of interest Thanks!

@ Dan - it took a little over two weeks to complete
@ DJE - I have a copy of the GPM version but didn't build it. When the Halinski kit was released, it didn't take long for me to buy a copy!
@ Kevin - the (old) GPM version has only 271 parts. Quite clearly, it is not in the same league...

The cockpit has a cylindrical shape, certainly to better withstand internal pressure. The pictures show the cylinder’s rear bulkhead, where the pilot’s seat will be fixed, and the pedals.

I suspected this was going to be a GREAT build thread: the very first images confirmed greatly my suspicion.

Your precision is incredible, you are taking out the best from this Halinski jewel.

I will be sticked to this thread, can't wait to see more!

Wow, the detail you've shown makes me think it's a Tamiya injection molded kit....holy crap

I know some old Revell big scale kits that could use these parts..

Just sayin

Cheers, Ian

Excellent start Ricardo! A little over two weeks to complete??? You must have been doing this in a holiday period. With 1600 parts in total that makes over 100 a day!

Cheers,
Erik

Thanks for the comments

@ Erik - The “a little” expression was in italics Without the italics, it would be “a lot”. More seriously, I process something like 3500 parts a year in aircraft subjects and 3000 in other subjects. If not in holidays, 1600 parts would fill 5 months. Many parts on Halinski kits are small and delicate but they don’t take long to deal with. Things like rotor blades (I’ll get there…) take a small fraction of the time needed for complex parts like the canopy frames of “your” Ju-88 or “my” Me-110.

The cockpit cylinder is clearly shown in the first pictures. It is painted on both sides because the exterior is visible through the landing gear openings. The seat looks comfortable!

Beautiful work on the cockpit. The seat is amazing.

Thanks, YOAV and Gary

The instrument panel has many parts, mainly because each dial has a rolled paper part and a circle behind. The second picture shows that my small circle cutter has seen better days…
As usual, plastic is sandwiched in the card parts to give a “glass” look.

great....real great.

But a small question ....
Will the rear cylindrical parts of the instruments will be seen?
Are they not covered in the end by the dashboard?
