Yeah, I do that with cabin interiors (and wing spars when applicable) too.
It makes any aircraft kit go together, far more easily
Some progress has been made - these 'Made in the UK' kits seem go together far better than some of their 'Made elsewhere' sisters...
The Eduard photo-etches are worth the investment - the main instrument panel is a minor work of art. I didn't add etches that weren't visible or the safety belts.
I do think Airfix missed out making this kit extra special by not adding the engine, judging by how much effort went into the rest of the kit.
As I type this, the two fuselage sides are glued together (and curing) and the wings are assembled....
.... more photo's to come today (hopefully)
