    I wasn't going to enter this build as I'm flat out at the moment, was going to wait until Build#11, but I couldn't resist! lol

    Away to a good start....

    cockpit instrument pannels etc all painted RLM66

    The instructions say to 'flatten' out all the instrument cluster details before placing decals. The detail is really good as you can see, so I thought it would be a shame to cut/sand it flat and loose all the detail, so I got the scapel blade out and cut all the dials etc and individually placed them, I think the 3D detail really adds to it as apposed to flat decal.
    From the 'Macro' shot I see a couple of the dials are a little off centre but its not decerable to the naked eye, so I'm really pleased with the result.
