Grumman JRF-5 Goose - Part 2

Hi there,

Finally, some update on my model. The interior is now finished: I added a lot of details thanks to the fantastic book Naval Fighters #66 ( and to good music :-) ). I painted the cabin and cockpit in yellow zinc chromate (not interiro green) as I want to make the early version of the JRF-5.








Overhead instrument panel


Cabin radio equipement rack



I made the Northill folding anchor with the wrapping of some wine bottleneck (Pessac-leognan  :rolleyes: )


Anchor and rope painted...



... the same in the bow compartment

You might wonder what's the use of all that stuff.... I didnt wrap the vacuum tank entirely as I wont be seen when closed. For that part I used aluminum foil and I used the teeth of a Tiger saw to reproduce the grooves, then wrapped it around some plastic



radio equipment painted



The overhead equipment panel is quickly painted and will be correctly painted black before painting the camo.



Thanks for looking,
