Fitting up

The seats are also built up

As you can see, looking very different in each of the scales

Fitting out

Now the cockpits can be built up

In 1/32 this means throttle, joystick and rudder pedals

In 1/48 just the joystick

In 1/72 Joystick and throttles

and in 1/144 the tiniest joysticks you can imagine

Detail Seat Detail

Final painting on the seats

Buckles and flotation devices where they matter, as well as framing between the cushions

Decal detail

The detail painting is done and all scales have decals to grace the cockpits

In 1/32 three separate decals for each of the display screens

In 1/48 these garish renditions for flat featureless panels, I’m thinking this will be a canopy closed build

In 1/72 lots of decals are supplied. All are oversized and cartoon like. Given the raised detail I have elected only to use the ones for the display screens

In 1/144 decals suffice perfectly well.

Seat detail

Detail painting has also been completed on the seats

All the cushion and frames 

Then the belts and pipework

Detailed

With the main colour dry time to detail the larger cockpit tubs

starting with the side panels the controls have been picked out in a darker colour

similarly on the dash

and in 1/72 some detail to pick out in paint

The other 2 scales have the controls depicted by decals

fade to charcoal

Also sprayed charcoal are the fuselage interiors around the cockpit areas
