Hello fellas, here is my final on the interior of the beast, pretty happy with it, electronic box came out really good and I’m proud of that detail, made out of the kit electronic box and detailed with Slixx decals and some wires, made a multi line wire using thin wire a piece of styrene, think wire and shrinking tube, and love how that detail came out.

work on the stirring wheel location and looks fine to me, and make the parachute released lever, everything looks clear and not crowded, hope you guys like it

What a piece of art! The details look so good! Guess you need a microscope to work on it and to look at it in the display latter! Incredible! Like your process. Will try to adopt that to my C5-R Silverado.

Parachute packs & brackets look excellent Marcos! Amazing work you're doing here!

Thanks Richard, now i need to focus on those windows, make them fit right, need to add some styrene to hold them in place, don't know how to do that yet, but will be fun just to find out how...

I love your great determination Marcos, your obsession with creating all these details is exemplary and I have no doubt that the final result will be exceptional.  For the windows, I know that there is a super glue (cyanoacrylate) designed specifically for this and it is not supposed to make white marks like the usual versions.  I have a bottle of it but I haven't tried it yet...  Perhaps clear two-part epoxy would still be the safest way?

Marcos, do you mean how to use the styrene or how to attach the windows to the styrene? When I get that far on my 2 builds, I'm going to use a thin strip of sheet plastic across the bottom of the window at the door level, to attach the windows I'm going to use what they call canopy glue (also heard that white glue(Elmer's glue) works good), both glues go on white, but dry clear. Hope either of these work for you.

Thanks Francis, I feel so inspired by your detail work and that makes me go farther and pick my limits LOL, thanks for the tip on the glue, normally I use the testors glue for clear parts and work fine so far, but I’m trying to replicate the frame for the glass to make it a little bit more realistic, I did start that detail this morning, going to take me a while before I can say I happy with it but is on the way I think

Thanks Richard, like a said to Francis, I’m trying to replicate the windows frame to make it more realistic, i did start that detail this morning but didn’t take any pictures , tomorrow will take some to show you guys what I have so far and what direction am taking,  I think glueing is not a problem for me, is more making the details that I want LOL

Hello guys, little update on the beast, just shout some primer and find out need to do some body work and fix one of the Mayor problem on the right side door, have a huge gap on the lower section and one friend told me how to fix this without going crazy, added a very thin piece of styrene, sanded and shout some filler primer over it, still need to do more filler to make it look smoother but is on the way

 

hope you guys like it
