Nice choice of kit, I've just started one of these as well, can't get enough Seafires.

When posting an image I usually just click inside the Direct box in Photobucket. That will copy the URL for you and then just paste into Image (the green square below the smiley face) in the toolbar at the top of your post. That should insert your picture striaght into your post.

As promised i have made a start not much progress but just started painting the cockpit and getting it ready to be put together, i will be doing more sunday evening and if not then it will be monday evening haha .

Here's the pilots seat after some chipping around the edge using some Humbrol acrylic 11.

Also got the instrument panel finished i don't really add colour to these i prefer to dry brush some white over the dials and bring the detail out rather than my low skill big colour blobs :banghead:

Looks good so far, you won't see much inside once it's all closed up anyways. Maybe a drop of gloss varnish in the centre of each dial for the "glass".

I like to paint the dials white then paint the whole panel black. Once this has dried you can use a sharp pin to scratch some of the black away. It doesn't have to be anything special as it will be hardly seen but it does make a difference I think. Once you've done that drybrush and add a drop of gloss varnish into the dial for the glass. Here's one I made earler.

Hi guys sorry I'm late on the post I've had a lot of work to do, but tonight i managed to make some progress I've put the two fuselage halves together and painted the cockpit and also got the propeller blades fitted onto the front.

starting with the glossing of the dials on the cockpit!

i then painted the props all black so i could tape them up and paint the yellow safety tips on them.

i then taped and painted the yellow section's and here they are put together,

20151013_200226_zpss1p8em2s.jpg

It does look rough and thats because i know i will end up getting paint all over the props and will have to re paint places anyway haha

Then i painted the cockpit a different shade of green i think it was humbrol 221? I'm not sure but the instructions said humbrol 33 black but i did some research and i saw the cockpits were not black and i found the humbrol 221 a more fitting colour.

i then did some cockpit detailing and dry brushing and then proceeded to put the fuselage halves together.

When the glue had dried i sanded down all the join marks and i will use filler once i have put the wings into place just so i can get the whole model filled rather than keep repeating the steps individually.

Can't fault a Sea.47 at all. :thumbsup:

Just remember though Brandon,LA546/900/LM was THE Station Commander's(Caspar John) personal aeroplane,

so would have been very clean and presentable at all times.

Just as a side interest,here's the Wiki for Caspar John:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caspar_John

In my era the big theatre / cinema / lecture hall thingy at BRNC Dartmouth was named after him: the Caspar John Hall. It may still be, for all I know (though I was there in 1978...). At the time I had no clue who he was - "some Admiral" would have been about as far as I got. Had I known he was a WAFU, I'd have paid more attention!
