I have the same kit in the stash, but with a full compliment of Aires cockpit, burner cans, wheel wells and a few other bits and bob. Been meaning to start it for a while but then I get scared. I'll watch this with great interest!

I love the cockpit-work so far!

Very nice choice Pedja, the resin pit is looking fantastic!  All the little added etch detail to the ordnance and tanks will really make this model spring into life when you are finally done.

 

Great work.

I'm planning one of these in 1/32 using the Tamiya kit, so will be looking for tips.

PS. I can't tell from the photos, but I hope the seats are MB5s not-7s

You are right,seats are H5 from Hypersonic models. Two H7,from Aires set, are now spare parts.

Lovely resin cockpit! Did you ever get it installed in the fuselage?

This project is on hold for some time.

But, the answer to your question, it  is very difficult to fit everything right , the  resin cockpit floor   you should grid to the  thickness of the micron (when the floor becomes transparent), then you try to thick plastic of nose whel bay (again, till it  get almost transparent)... and even than ...it's hard to fit it in nose part of the fuselage. I hope i helped you, because i couldn't help myself.:huh:
