Im very happy, that after half of the year I finished the pilots seat. The main part of the seat and mounting is done and available. Now Im going to add details as flares box.
The seat will be small kit in the cockpit kit.

Probably you are thinking, why Im doing Minion. But, be sure, also that "Minion" is a part of Spitfire cockpit. A large pressure bottle for emergency extension of the landing gear. Master is almost done. The bottle will come with the mounting belts.

Here are pictures of the new reflection gunsight Mk.II. That one you can also in some P-47 Razorback cockpit. I suppose that one would work with TopFlite GS P-47 or Meister Scale.
Now Im finishing the master of large pressure bottle. It could be done tomorrow, then will be some molding.

Detailing of the pilot seat in progress. Leveling horn and bracket will be an extra part which will be included in the seat kit. That should ensure scale result.

Today Ive done the first new designed Reflector gunsight Mk.II. In the pictures you can see how they will come out ready made gunsights. Painted with some light weathering, label and sreen.

Some paiting today. Only the black base paint. The final painting and detailing I will do tomorrow. Im going to make some labels for the instruments and controllers. Not sure if water stencils or stickers labels. Any idea or experience?

I can't tell if that cockpit picture of the Minion is real or a scale reproduction in the context of your work, sir. Please elucidate!

Yesterday I finished the paint job of the chassis controller, morse key and voltage regulator. I know, the the parts of cockpit werent so weathered, but weathering helps to highlight some details. Well, if they should or shouldnt look like new depends only on the customers.
