More elements are added to the interior in preparation for the seats. One of the trunks is seen with labels pasted on it:

Looking very swish and colourful. I hope you've got scale pile in the carpet :whistle:

I even dropped randomly some scale peanut and pistachio shells. But the difficult part was to make those couple flies in the pantry in 1/72.

Brilliant modelling Moa.

The toilets were just for the crew, as we know, upper class British don't have butts nor they perform lesser body functions. They just explode when they reach full capacity, like Mr. Creosote.

They get commoners to do it for them.

The seats are now given a base color:

Looks like the Battle of Atlanta to me. Or the aftermath of my cockroach extermination many years ago (in San Diego BTW)  So many seats.......

The seats are glued in position:

That photograph is damnably satisfying Moa.

You have restored order to the Universe through the medium of seating.

As you mentioned on another build, modern designers can relearn a thing or two from these bygone aircraft and how they view their customers.

Looking rather swish that is.

The kit's mudguards are awfully inadequate, so I first tried to make them with engraved and pressed styrene:

But that did not work, so I used one of the wheels I substituted for the kit's (awful too) to vac a couple of mudguards:

Some tweaking and a better result, but still have to add the ribbing and "flatten" a bit the trailing edge:

The tables between opposite seats -as seen in photos- are added.
I asked my British wife if she would use the brand of hygienic paper suggested here by some members, and she blanched and was outraged. She said it was unladylike and ungentlemanly-like. So my passengers will most emphatically be using toilet roll, which I added too, and thank you very much but you can keep the creased sandpaper called Izal to yourselves as used in your flying saucers, offices or schools. My passengers were reputedly paying the equivalent of 20,000 pounds for the longest trips, so I think they deserve at the very least the courtesy of civilized toilet rolls, even if they lack bidets, which is on itself a scandal and not at all posh:

Great modelling as always.

She is my consultant in British modeling matters, although she wants to knit sweaters for my models in winter:

Well done Moa. The interior looks great, especially with that red racing stripe on the floor. They couldn't add one outside as this beast was slow... 😁

 

Getting all these seats, and the ones for the Ju 52, done shows just how patient you are. Love the mudguards.

 

Cheers,

Wlad

Love what you have done, I had to do a similar full interior on my Vanguard as the windows are quite large, but I think this is much better with the extra detail you have added

...but she's from the Federal Republic of Yorkshire, so she must be pretty close.
