Yep, in case anyone was curious, the Big Spit is still on the workbench and still in production. Finished up the dashboard/instrument panel and test-fitted it to the lower bulkhead. I managed to pull off the fuel and oil pressure guages (the red and yellow thingy's to the immediate right of the central instrument cluster), and added the fuel cock levers just to the right of the compass:

Ye 'ol dashboard seems a good dry fit inside the starboard fuselage half:

I've made a tentative start on some extra details on the fuselage side wall - much more to come - and on the bulkhead that will hold the pilot's seat:

Just a quickie update to let you know teddy boy is still in the game! Oh - and a note to my family and relatives: Stop calling me so I can get some work done on models! Harumph.

HyperScale's Group Build Guidelines

The objective of this Group Build is to encourage as many modellers as possible to build their kits and share their progress via words and photos on this Forum.

You are welcome to post general construction tips or relevant reference information and photos to this Forum too.

This Group Build will feature Airfix, Frog and Matchbox kits.

  1. Build as many kits as you like

  2. Conversions, aftermarket and scratchbuilding are all permitted.

  3. Any markings are acceptable.

  4. Document your progress and do a write-up on your build - where did you have trouble, what improvements did you make, what markings did you choose and why? It would be GREAT if everyone would do a writeup and submit it to HyperScale as a Feature Article.
