Airfix 1/72 Whirlwind - cockpit and canopy

Working on the cockpit and canopy mainly..
Vacformed the canopy, made three and picked the best one.

Added a little bit of detail to the visibles parts of the cockpit sides.

An instrument panel, punched discs of plasticard.

Pilot seat and rear decking, shopped the roll over off and made a new one form copper wire. A couple of rectangles of plasticard as the batteries, and a fairing of 5 thou card at the top of the roll frame.
Pilot in his office with a control stick.

Check of the clarity of the vac form canopy, I like worth the effort.

More Fill'n Sand ahead..
