Awesome job so far.  This kit is on my wishlist.

 

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but should there be lap belts on the ejection seats?

 

Looking forward to your next update.

Yes you are correct . i built those for the back seat . I pooped out on the lap part . I have not installed them , so I may build them . I used Tamiya tape and small lead wire

:analintruder: Wow, Ricky...

This is impressive, really. I always wanted to do something like this with one of my Monogram Phantom kits. Dunno I would have the guts to make it on a Hasegawa - much less the awesome Zoukei-Mura kit - but the idea is Phantastic!

Me is speechless (which is perhaps not a bad thing at all :lol:).

Patiently following this build.

Cheers,
