1/144 RAF Panavia Tornado GR4 "Shiney Two" - Open panels - Wip 1 -

Got started on the cockpit really quite quickly then decided to do something new, open panels.

Spent some time do research into what panels i could expose and not over complicate the model with the too much going on thing. The panels i choose are both computer points which are quite easy to replicate in 1/144, just a few small boxes.

Marked what i wanted to be cut out, then spent what felt like hour carefully cutting them out with a scalpel blade.

Used plasticard to the the inside of the panel, all very simple but effective i think, didn't have to build the box as the plastic was so thick. Hoping i can paint the detail in there.

Cheers, still more to do though.

Check out the Japanese modellers, makes mine look like a colouring book attempt.
