Thanks Hawk but they are just generic arms right now. I want to work them some more and cut them off and make they do something....anything! Pretty boring poses right now. Nav has a seat back, I just didn't have it in the pic. I've since glued all the parts in except the crew. Going to work on them now.

Thanks Stack!

Thanks Woody

More work on the flight deck. Made hands for the crew from Sculptey clay, oven @ 275 degrees for 15 min and they're done.
Finally started painting on the crew. Pic shows how they will be placed.

That is awesome John. Simply awesome. The only thing you didn't do was put an LED in the lamp over the navigators desk. ;-)

It does look like a foot Hawk. Good thing is, once it's installed, this pic is the only way you will see him. In the starboard rearmost window. Looks a little better from that view with him holding his protractor now.
Still adding a few things, trouble is once it's under the canopy you can't see much unless you get down to it's level. But it's too cold to seal the middle section and fuse outside so I'm just playing around now.

Thanks guys

No John,
No LED in the light, you have to draw the line somewhere.

Taped the flight deck in and tried to get pics. Just can't do it in shop light. So I took it outside in 30 degree weather and got a few. Brrr. Winter finally got here.
I do need to tame the harnesses down some colorwise.
I'm going to think about it overnight before I glue it in. Might think of a few other things to "liven" it up some. I do need to remember to clean the canopy before I attach it.

J, you have a work of art.

AC-119K, the "K" has got to stand for "Killer".
