Twice over

Some fun time spent adding detail to the just sprayed cockpit components

On the Gnat instruments have been picked out and “Glass” added with gloss varnish. I may still add in a wash to the rudder pedals to give some contrast and detail

On the Sabre the instruments are represented by decals

But on the Phantom it’s back to a fine brush and picking out the detail.

Meanwhile back to the Gnat, and the seats have been detailed. All painted in, following reference photo’s I have painted in a nylon cover in grey over the green of the cushions, and a blast of yellow for the flotation cushions. Pulls have been painted yellow with black stripes picked out in fine permanent marker. Buckles in aluminium.

The sabre is a simpler one piece affair. The rear cushion and belts added from Tamiya tape

Whilst the Phantom has been painted similarly to the Gnat. Albeit in slightly different tones based on reference photo’s
