Now for a little bit of the build.
The interior cockpit walls, bulkheads and main parts were sprayed grey/green cockpit interior, whilst the detail parts like instrument panels and seat faces were hand painted with Humbrol enamels.
The panels were given a light oil wash to hopefully give a realistic worn effect.
As I'm intending to display the Blenheim in flight I needed some crew. The Airfix kit provides 1 crew member (presumably the pilot),so I raided 1 of my other Blenheim kits and obtained an Observer. The turret will also be in action so I needed a WOp/AG, and this crew member came from my parts bin (the 1 missing his legs below the knee).
Despite the quality of the new tool kits, I don't think the detail is much of an improvement on the pilots over some of the older tool flight crews. I painted them in tropical kharki drill, again with my trusted enamels and brushes and hopefully once behind the transparent glass parts they will look effective flight crew.
Once the cockpit is complete I will begin masking before the cockpit section is attached to the body of the aircraft.
