Fokker E.V/ D.VIII cockpit finished

I’m calling the cockpit on this done so I should be able to get the fuselage glued together and make some progress on the rest of the model;

 The rear panel and seat were covered in Aviattics’ exterior lozenge decal with the seat bottom done with Uschi Van Der Rosten woodgrain. The seat belts were two layers of masking tape cut into 1.5mm strips and the buckles were cut from the etched belts in the kit.
The rudder pedals are supposed to be at that angle as the rudder will be offset to starboard. The faces for the compass and tachometer actually came from an old 1/72 Airfix Canberra decal sheet which were cut out using a 1.4mm round punch.

I've been a modelmaker for a verrry long time and still show no signs of growing out of it after 50 plus years. I mainly build tanks, aircraft and paint figures but generally do whatever takes my fancy whether it's historical, Science-fiction, a 'what-if' or because it has pretty colours and looks nice. I'm hoping that you find my blog interesting and useful, particularly if building a model that I have built and documented here.
