No micro-vacuum cleaner I am afraid Lance. The leather of the seats and wood finish are completely realistic - wonderful finish. I especially like the wear pattern on the pilot's seat.

Truly superb interior, Lance!  Your detail work is absolutely brilliant.  I'm really enjoying watching this one come together.
Cheers,
Bud

Thanks Stephen and Bud,
     I used Tamiya's Weathering Master Oil Pastel Packs (Soot and Mud) for the wear effects on the leather seat. The lozenge application is now slowly underway, I'll log some more photos when that's complete.
Cheers,
Lance

Lance, to view your work is always a great pleasure!

The lozenge application is now slowly underway
Ha, the same on my side, really time consuming :(

Cheers,

So I create downscaled originals.

Interior looks great Lance.  I am especially drawn to the cableing that you did for the throttle and fuel mixtures, very nice and perks up that part of the model.  I will have to review this when I tackle my next LVG.  Get ready for some real modeling excitement as you enter the lozenge stage.  It's too bad there isn't a "cookie cutter" version for the LVG as it is quite a time consuming effort.  Steady on, as they say.

Mark,
    Yes, I'm discovering more by the hour how long this step takes, and then there's a million rib tapes to follow! Modelling excitement at it's peak! :o

Hi Lance
I remeber those rib tapes very fondly... 8) Worth it in the end and at that certain point when you realise "I've only got one to go" your smile should be recorded  ;D.

Cheers

Alistair,
     Great inspiration, I'll keep that firmly in mind!
Mark,
    You bet; at least there's no rib tapes on a Voodoo! ::)
Cheers,
