Here are pictures of the new reflection gunsight Mk.II. That one you can also in some P-47 Razorback cockpit. I suppose that one would work with TopFlite GS P-47 or Meister Scale.
Now Im finishing the master of large pressure bottle. It could be done tomorrow, then will be some molding.

Detailing of the pilot seat in progress. Leveling horn and bracket will be an extra part which will be included in the seat kit. That should ensure scale result.

Today Ive done the first new designed Reflector gunsight Mk.II. In the pictures you can see how they will come out ready made gunsights. Painted with some light weathering, label and sreen.

Some paiting today. Only the black base paint. The final painting and detailing I will do tomorrow. Im going to make some labels for the instruments and controllers. Not sure if water stencils or stickers labels. Any idea or experience?

I don't have experience with either of them, but I think that sticker labels would be suitsble

at this scale water stencils look more "true" IMHO

Stickers would be better for the painting masks, but the text is very small, so it could cause troubles during painting. Friend, who do plastic kits have NC cutter for the small masks.
But as Vasek mentioned. Water stencils would look more true. Another option is sticker on the black base.

Some pictures of the text on the stickers with the black base. Not sure if they are good enough.

Thank you Vasek. I think, that stickers with the black base would be easier for the other guys, because not at all like to work with water stencils.

Yesterday I finished the paint job of the chassis controller, morse key and voltage regulator. I know, the the parts of cockpit werent so weathered, but weathering helps to highlight some details. Well, if they should or shouldnt look like new depends only on the customers.

It's going alright. The leading edges of the wings still need to be sanded round. More recently, I was trying to figure out the receiver, battery and fuel tank placement inside the narrow fuselage.

What engine will you use? The narrow fuselage and nose are standard problem. I was suprised how big cowl is on the spitfire. There is no problem to hide DLE 30.
In the pictures is another Spitfire, but the same cowl.
