1:32 Tamiya Spitfire Mk.IXc

So while I’m trying to work out how to add the plumbing to the other side of the fuselage I decided to finish off the instrument panel bulkhead and control column sub-assembly.

When I make another 1/32 Tamiya Spitfire I’ll remove the securing band for the 3 copper wires and attache them in one piece. Also I’ll replace the Tamiya IP decals with the Barracuda ones to get rid of the blue artificial horizon.

As a by-the-by I’ve decided not to use the Yahu version, to my eyes it looks a little too flat.

 

I had to dry-fit the IP and port fuselage sub-assemblies placed on the cockpit “floor frame”.

The starboard fuselage plumbing will be next, once I work out what I need to do.

 

until next time

as always, any suggestions, criticisms or comments will be gratefully received.

thanks guys, I'm taking my time with this as I'm really enjoying the whole process, its a fantastic kit and I know that I'll be building the Mk.VIII, love the shark mouth Grey Nurse, and probably the Mk.XVI
