At the end of our last episode, detailing of the Spitfire starboard cockpit wall had begun. Scraps of rod and sprue were cut, sanded and trimmed to replicate the various and sundry wiring, piping and other bits seen in reference photos - most of which I must confess I have no idea what in heck they actually are:

Other instruments were scratch-built and later painted separately:

The Waldron placards and that undercarriage lever assembly sure look cool when installed:

And when the dashboard assembly is added, the whole thing is really starting to come together and look like an actual 'busy' cockpit:

Okay, now on to the 'port' fuselage, then the pilot figure, and closing up this baby!

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.
