The One With the Cockpit
This week I finally finished the cockpit. It was not difficult to put together, but I added some difficulty by getting a set of custom decals. The cockpit decals provided in the box were not very extensive, and the ones I ordered added a lot of little panels and details that make it much more satisfying for me. Whenever I work on a kit I always think of the special features from the Lord of the Rings movies, where the special effects people talk about the detail they put into their models. Most of it is never overtly seen in the movies, but it adds a layer of authenticity.
I am getting very close to the final assembly, so hopefully by next weekend I can post some nearly complete pictures.
