Those camo schemes terrify me. Enjoy.

Hi TonyOD, thanks, the jg 2 one isn't that bad as long as the hgw wet decals I have for the squiggles behave

Hi all, here's an update of this build. I'm going to build them in tandem until the painting of the camouflage schemes. I first removed the cockpit side wall detail and thinned the cockpit sides ready for the resin cockpit. The rear cockpit, nose bulkheads have been fitted to one of the fuselarges to aid alinement the resin exhaust holders have been fitted also. 

Cockpit and undercarriage parts were first given a coat of matt black paint

The undercarriage parts and wheel Wells were then painted rlm 02

The cockpit was painted rlm 66 (xtracolour)  and the propellers have been given a coat of rlm 70 (colourcoats)

Hi, I have started to paint the details of The cockpit. I have used the plastic rudder pedels for the toe straps I used cigarette paper painting hemp cut into fine strips. The radiator fronts have been dry brushed with (model air) aluminum. The wheel Well walls have been painted hemp and leather.

 And finally I have filled the mg 131 ejection ports on the centre part of the wings using filler which was covered with liquid plastic ready to be sanded smooth.

Hi all, I have just found this photo of black 2  of 2./jg77. In this photo it looks like it's got g-2 wings without the wing blues of the g-4. Mmmmm. Nick

Hi all, here is another update, the cockpits have been finished painted. The fuel line for the drop tank was 1st painted pink then one coat of rlm 04. The rubber Union pipes were painted hunbrol 67. For the seat belts I have used eduard true fabric seat belts for the g-2 and the metal ones which come with the eduard kits.

For the instrment panels I thave used the coloured etched panels. These were first given a coat of matt varnish, I used a drop of ca glue to tack then together. For the instrment glass I used  Johnson klear this wold also help to glue the panels together

The cockpits were then fitted to the fuselarges after a bit of more scraping the sides.

For the rear cockpit decking I used 20" plastic card which I then covered with liquid plastic ( sprue dissolved in liquid cement) when it's fully hardened will be sanded smooth
