I decided to try my hand at a jet and started this kit. Completed the cockpit. Excuse the quick cell pics. I had to scratch build the oxygen hose from two different types of wire. The carpet monster ate the kit part. Again no airbrush was harmed in making this.

Some progress. Lots and lots of sanding. I really need a decent camera and lighting setup.

Cool. I decided not to split my fuselage, the fit of the front and rear sections of my kit is a bad fit. I had to do small sections and try wrangle it into final position...will still need sanding and re-scribibig.
