    Aftermarket addons: Techmod Decals / CMK Interior (I have not decided for sure on using this)

    Ok, time for me to jump back in to build SOMETHING by the end of the year. I need to research the various markings / pilots in the Techmod decal set. I will update the thread as I find more information.

    Good one. I'm finding the Italeri kit a bit of a challenge. Instrument panel fit is a bit of a head scratcher. I'll be posting an update on my build soon.

    Hello, Guys,
    I have been making progress on the Hurricane. But, not as much as I would like. This annoying thing called a job keeps getting in the way. Ok, a few updates. I have been working on the resn cockpit. I am about ready to finalize a few things on it (seat assembly and IP). Once these are done, I will be ready to test fit it into the fuse. I have the motor painted and assembled, no extra detailing as I am going to close up the engine compartment.

    Photos of cockpit follow:

    Hey, Wurger,
    Can you move this thread to the Start to Finish area? I am going to continue on with this one and I would like to update the thread.
    Thanks,
    Dale

    Not sure it matters Dale. I've continued many of my GB threads past the deadline and just didn't post the finished thread.
