Cockpit continued

Thank you all very much for your reactions, glad you like the subject. It's indeed an historical and famous aircraft and I hope to do justice to it and the great model that Halinski made out of it.

@Isaac: All these holes..... I have a revolving hole puncher that will hopefully do the job

@ccoyle: You simply need to try one of these models, prepare yourself well by studying all the parts and instruction drawings in advance and before you know it you're in business. Very detailed doesn't necessarily mean difficult to build!

@rmks2000: The pattern of the grid floor is printed on the flooring part and I just cut the bars from 0.5mm thick plastic (paint it first! Tamiya cockpit green XF-71) and glued them on the pattern. A lot of work but I had some time on my hands as last week I was recovering from covid....

All right, continued with the interior details. Although I try to build in numerical order it is perfectly logical to divide the interior in center section (radio compartment), pilot's office and gunner's position and build accordingly.

Herewith the proceedings of the radio compartment. I detailed the dials and am still considering to add a bit more details to the other switches. The print is plain in color but highly detailed. The shelf construction to the formers is fragile. To avoid having difficulty to fit in the various radio boxes, I found it easier to pre-assemble the bottom shelf, install it, then pre-assemble the top shelf and install it, in between the already installed formers.

The front bulkhead is equipped with a drinking bottle next to the not yet installed pilot's seat, a fine and small detail consisting of 6 parts (!).

Great job Erik as always. For holes I used 1mm punch. It did the job nicely.

Wow! You are really a handyman!
Have you used a template or cut the holes free-hand?

Thanks guys!

Indeed, Tom, a hole puncher I intend to use but mine doesn't go smaller than 2mm diameter holes. Need to check further but luckily I'm not there yet. Cutting out with a knife would be equal to self-torture, that's really the last resort .

The interior of the cockpit is coming along nicely. The entire pilot's area is finished now, with a bit of detailing of the instrument panels (knobs and flip switches/turning dials). Nothing particular to mention, only be careful when gluing all these small handles and grips, they're all over the cockpit and before you know it they break off.

Also the central section with the radios is finished now, the only relatively complicated part to install is drawer box part no. 22 (visible in the last two pictures) This needs to be wedged in between two ribs, requiring some maneuvering with a pair of tweezers.

The pictures show the various stages of completion and progress.

Working my way through the gunner's section now. May take a week or two before the next contribution to this thread, Will be enjoying a short getaway in the coming week.

Working on this cockpit is extremely addictive, that's one thing for sure!

Cheers,
Erik

Absolutely fantastic work. You are an artist, not a modeller. I still wonder why people build plastic models. No plastic reproduction of the Dauntless has the detail this card rendition has. Really amazing. Congratulations.
