B-25 Mitchell "TONDELAYO": The Cockpit.

The pics I have seen of the "TONDELAYO" show a green tinted upper windshield visor. I decided to match that, so after removing the canopy I applied a couple of light coats if MM Green with the airbrush on the inside of the 2 visor panels.

While I had the canopy off I blew all the old paint off the foam cockpit with an air gun sporting 100 psi. I then cleaned it with some warm soapy water followed up with a wipe down with alcohol. Once dried I applied a coat of Adhesion Promoter, painted the dash flat black, the cockpit with MM Interior green, and the seat backs with MM Leather brown. Once the paint dried I reattached the pilot and co-pilot with some hot glue, and then re-glued the canopy back on with Formula '560' canopy glue.
