The cockpit looks SWEET!
And I pretty much know how it feels buddy - as a rule early-going-to-bad family members are the main reasons for prolonging the build. Especially sad when it is only a layer of future to apply and then fast continue with weathering, 10 minutes of compressor running max, but the silence mode has to be kept.
Anyway, You're going great job, man, keep it coming!

Nah Pixel was just showing off when i asked him if he could airbrush he answered can you touch the top of your nose with your tongue !!!

BTW This is how the office looks from less than 10 inches away !

It is too bad Neo that you've lost most of your Pre-shading..... after painting your Base coat! It would have been Awesome to see some of it come through the paint scheme.... Those birds were as abused as the TomCats in their glory days!

Oh well!

Keep up the good work!

It is coming together quite nicely!

And nice office space/den ! Hard to believe you build in such nice conditions! LOL. You are the envy of many I am sure!

Norm.

Hey Neo your hard work on the intake and the office look great!!! Your dog does look hungry!!! My cats like to eat my models! They like the Props on my B-17, I had it displayed on the top of our piano, that is until the props got chewed up. Anyways, your build is looking fantastic, Keep up the great work!!!

Thanks for the nice comments guys.

i know know that to keep your pre shade you must go thinner on the coats!! But not to worry Post shade and salt weathering is on its way !!

Cheers
