Airfix Sea Vixen (4)

The completed cockpit - well, completed to my satisfaction. Surprisingly enough the cockpit requires 20 of the kit's 84 stages - the seats are each six parts, the ejection handles being particularly small even in this scale. I've added some foil belts, a couple of buckles and the rest is the the best I could do with a brush for the smaller details. As usual not much will be visible when the fuselage is closed up. I've also added a view of the air brake bay and wheel wells installed in the lower fuselage half.  I actually can't see myself doing a full WIP for this one as I shall probably have to put it to one side soon and get on with something I can actually finish...it must be the biggest kit I've tackled since the Airfix 24 scale Harrier back when I was 12 years old ..apart from the 24 scale Fw 190 which is stalled of course..
