  8. Well after cleaning up the HPModel Javelin seat and building a mount for it to fit on the square on the cockpit tub I've come to a conclusion the seats are way too small . The seats was barely above the cockpit not looking right and also looking way to small . So after lots of dry fitting i decided to cut the cushion separate from the frame , sanded the sides of the frame off and with some mods to the backside the cushion it fits in the kit seat frame. 3C154221-9177-4E88-AE5B-B880288DB864 by b007scott, on Flickr 6C102B31-27B0-46B3-86EF-C74E61CD9508 by b007scott, on Flickr

Amazed at the size of the surface this plane was massive . Still ple
  10. Followed Antii K's idea on Britmodeler on how he did the burner cans . I went used a razor saw to cut the kick parts in half .I need to clean the burner cans up next . After i installed the burner can tubes on the lower airframe i had to sand the very end of them so the burner cans would fit flush . Once burner cans and FOD covers are attached I'll slide them on last . Forgot to mention the assembley of the burner cans it not the greatest fit ! By doing what I did the fit it much better . 81C21A6C-EB98-439B-8B96-9FCEAFE742CD by b007scott, on Flickr BBEC7F0A-777A-4440-8FAE-86D
