Put the camera in Aperture Priority mode (most cameras, even smartphones, will have this), and stop down to f/16 or higher

 

Not iPhones apparently Bill.  The aperture is fixed seemingly.  P’raps there’s a clever app wot can do it🤔

Yeah the little Hawk looks cool....but dear me tell them little Airfix pilots to wipe their feet before they jump in the cockpit next time....lol!

:D - Hard working little aircraft the Hawk, Phil; troops of young boys climbing into em without wiping they're feet first....:winkgrin:

forgive me if I don't read through all 133 pages

Consider yourself forgiven, Charlie;  I wouldn't wish 133 pages of this on you :fraidnot:

 

So.  Working on the TWU hawk cockpit today.

 

Cut back the support structure as with t'other one.....

Glued in the IPs - these ones of course have weapons switches ;) and trimmed the coamings.

 

Coamings and seats dry-fitted:

Next job is to finish fettling the coamings and stick em in!  Followed by the windscreens.

Try Bicarbonate of soda instead of flour is rock solid

Haven't there been horror stories about this mixture degenerating into a evil bubbling mass due to the sodium bicarbonate content soaking up water over a period of time?
Though I imagine this depends on the mix, and could be kept at bay by sealing it in with something waterproof.

Do you think, with all that gorgeous cockpit detail, you'll be modelling this with the canopies open?

I don't fink so - as you say Steve the aperture is fixed - 'cos iPhone doesn't have an aperture AFAIK :( 

That said I like ProCamera  - it has lots of settings you can play with to mess up the photos, but it does seem to do better than the standard app.

 

Oh, and the second i/p is just as nice as the first :)
