Cool , looks like there's plenty of parts. If they all fit, even the better . :good

Looking forward to this . Amazing what a long life that airframe has had , as the BE-12 just seems to be a lot of upgrade to the original design.

Cheers, Christian B)

Had some time this morning!

This is the best i can do about the interior now. My apologies for my mistake! The scratched control column turned out well, but you'll have to take my word for it. :bangs head

I installed all the green house, just waiting for a Montex mask set..

These little windows were nice but there are 29 of them and they are all different and only go in 1 way so you need to install them 1 by 1

Here is the fuselage all buttoned up!

I did some work on the other pieces as well,

wings; these are not glued yet as I am waiting on some Vector engines!

The kit gives you options for up to 8 hard points for torpedoes, sonar buoys and mines (included) or bombs (not included) but I am only going to install the 2 torpedoes for this build.

Drilled out the fuel dump (I assume, this design is like what is found on the PBY)

The torpedoes, I added the pins on front

Tail, these pieces are not glued yet. I mentioned that the fit is incredible on this kit. My plan is to leave the wings off, paint everything and then assemble the plane. Should make painting easier and I've never been able to do that with a kit before!

I mentioned the floats earlier and the boxy support struts, here's an assembled one to show you

And for the engine cowls, i started to cave them out, I'll install a couple engines for a bit more realism
