    Nice bird! It'll be a good complement to Rochie's 1/48 desert 109F.

    I need some help with the lap belts, does anyone have any photos? The instructions in the HGW set leave a lot to be desired.

    Clear enough Geo, thanks a ton! You're supposed to attach what you assemble as a separate belt to one of the main belts, but I did not know how it should sit. Those pictures solved it!

    Finished up the cockpit today. Thanks to Geo's pics I was able to somewhat place the belts properly. They're not perfect, and I switched a pair of buckles on the first belt I make so I just made the second to match. If you cut the belts right on the dotted line like they tell you, you're going to be angry and probably want to punch a baby, but if you cut them off of the sheet a little narrow, it's much easier. There are also times where they want to you loop two pieces of belt through the same buckle, which I found to be impossible, so I just glued them so it looks the same. I used the Testors clear window glue to attach the belts to each other, and to help hold them down in the cockpit. They look better than PE, but I'm unsure if they're worth the effort. I do have three more sets for different planes, such as the P-40 I will be building for the next GB so we'll see. I've closed up the fuselage as well, but I'll take better pictures when there's actually something to show. I'll also grab another photo of the main part of the cockpit tomorrow when there's some natural light.

    Innards look great Cory. I know what you mean about the belts; they look waaaaaay better than P.E. but I just can't justify the cost.

    Thanks guys! I can't even remember what they cost Geo, I bought a few sets at the same time about a year ago, it was the frustration factor for me.
