I haven't built a biplane in 14 years and have a few WWII biplanes in the stash so why not start with the one with the most rigging?! This is the cutting edge cockpit which is definitely an upgrade from the kit cockpit but also reminds me how far resin cockpits have come... It made me work for it and while it's not my best work I'm happy with it.. That's also the quickboost part of the upper part of the bulkhead behind the pilot, have the quickboost doors and a vac canopy as well. I like this Roden kit, it's the one I built 14 years ago but it does take some work. I think I'll deserve a couple shake and bake Tamiya builds when this one's done (actually, nice simple D.520's sitting on the bench right now too in case I need a break from this one) Will be in Greek markings when it's done.
(Anyone know how to rotate this pic?)

Looking good, and looking forward to updates.
