What's going to happen is in 50 years time when Johnny Futuremodeller looks through the data sphere via his cerebral implant for information on what shade of teal the cockpit of the Soviet aircraft stationed in Syria in 2017 were he'll find endless selfies, pictures of food, complete geo-location data for something called a kardsian (whatever that is - it appears to be some sort of parasite) but no information on what he wants to know except a small photo from a Ukranian website showing one of Dizzy's builds (which is useless for research as they failed to attribute it to him and his originals were lost in the great datacrash of 2018).

Another ill conceived, poorly thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

Was going to say, if you're meaning the Pilot's Side Cap - or Peaked Officer's Cap - it should be the same colour as his uniform.
If you're talking about the leather Flying Helmet though, yeah - Brown.

Have fun with the build, it sounds interesting.  :thumbsup:

when these days I can tell you what Ralph in Nantucket ate for lunch on the 3rd of September, 2014.



But can you ?  ;)

All depends how well detailed Ralph's notes are. If he just jots down "ham and eggs" there are numerous interpretations and most will make their way onto the Net as the accurate interpretation  ;D

No statement survives the first retelling, and that's not taking the deliberate missinterpretations into account  :rolleyes:

Go with what your research suggests is correct. You at least have the research to back your interpretation up  :thumbsup:

Ahh yeah!! I see what you mean!   Fascinating to think about it that way. I guarantee you so many things we think of as solid about world history are probably straight up milarkey.

And, indeed, many of the things we 'know' about the world as it is now, in our own time...  :o

Yeah, the flight leather thingy. lol   I may have been slightly in a haze yesterday morning. I was thinking "skull cap" so went with it.   I had half a mind to throw the pilot and seat into the stash and not do anything to the interior seeing as how the pilot and seat are ...... 100% of the contents...  I guess I'll paint some instruments in there and the side walls, etc, but not a whole lot of detail going on.

There are some (ok, many) Rude and Unkind people who would - and do - say I spend most of my life wandering around in a daze... Hurtful Rotters!

 Ah, happy daze...  :mellow:

I find drawing instruments on with a sharp pencil is easier than painting them.  Paint the panels the appropriate colour and draw some dials etc.  On the sort of kits I usually build the thickness of the canopy prevents a good view of this area anyway.

Yeah, a pencil or a fine-pointed marker pen. Gives a lot more control too.

BTW, the yellow-life-savey-thing is called a Mae West (colloquially)



From the wiki-thingy;
Quote
Mae West

The Mae West was a common nickname for the first inflatable life preserver, which was invented in 1928 by Peter Markus (18851974) (US Patent 1694714), with his subsequent improvements in 1930 and 1931. The nickname originated because someone wearing the inflated life preserver often appeared to be as large-breasted as the actress Mae West. It was popular during the Second World War with U.S. Army Air Forces and Royal Air Force servicemen, who were issued inflatable Mae Wests as part of their flight gear. Air crew members whose lives were saved by use of the Mae West (and other personal flotation devices) were eligible for membership in the Goldfish Club.

Getting there! Gear, gear doors, prop, spinner, are all painted. 90% of body work is done to the fuselage. I need to take a file and sandpaper to the wings then I suppose I can glue them on. The tail planes, too.

I feel like I'm getting behind already. I think I'll keep working for awhile to help with this feeling.   ;)
