G'day David, I reckon the pilot of this stunning looking aircraft had the problem of 'friendly fire' solved!
It will be fantastic to see the finished model. Cheers, raafbloke

I'm onboard too for this. I'm fascinated by the whole captured wings/ alternate markings aspect. Watching with interest 👍

Following. A dangerous thing to fly a captured aircraft.

Sorry folks! I just realized I grabbed the wrong boxing for the captured bird!!!! It's a Late G-6 so the Tamiya doesn't have the correct canopy! So I'll just do the box art bird! Doh!!! Or if no one has any objections to me pressing on correct canopy or not..... Then I'll keep on truckin'!

My advice (and it includes a stash increase 👍😢 would be: you buy an additional Eduard G6 profi. These have more canopies than needed, you can build the capture version and still enough options to build the Eduard one fully...

Now there is an idea Sergej! Except no stash increase required! I already have a Eduard G6 Late in the stash.... Hopefully the canopy will fit the Tamiya! If so... This works well! The late G6 I was wanting to build from the Eduard kit uses the canopy that will remain if I steal one from the kit! Fingers crossed! Thanks for the help!

Yep! That cockpit really looks nice! 👍 Cool to see Tamiya's engineering in the way the front fuselage is designed to fit. And did Eduard's Erla canopy fit?
22. October 2020, 22:15
David Barclay
Thanks Patrick! Haven't tried the canopy yet.... Waiting to get the fuselage buttoned up 1st.... Hopefully!

Front seat please, curious how the kit wil be.
Probably it wil fall together in typical Big T fashion 🙂

Hi All! Well the cockpit is pressing along.... Weird that Instrument panel doesn't get sorted out for another few steps..... Thanks for looking!
