There were some ejector pin marks in the seats and in the cockpit sidewalls. These were easily filled or sheeted over, and construction proceeded. Trumpeter provides film instruments that sandwich between plastic parts to provide a very nice instrument panel. There are multiple handles and levers for both throttle consoles, and compasses for the tops of the coamings. The sidewall has molded-on details…Most of it is quite good, but I found the radio panels a bit soft on detail, so I simply scratchbuilt two new ones and installed them right over the top of the molded-on ones.
I painted the cockpit Testor's Russian Interior Blue-green, with flat black panels, consoles and coamings. I washed everything with black-brown tinted Future, then shot Testors Acrylic Flat, and applied silver scuffing with a Prismacolor silver art pencil. Trumpeter supplies no seat belts, so I added belts and photoetched hardware from my spares box.
This thing is a little kit unto itself.
I used multiple shades of Testor's Metalizers and the aforementioned Future wash tocomplete this beauty, which assembled with no problems. There are some more ejector pin marks on the firewall to be sheeted over, but they were no problem at all.
