Is the cockpit of the ju 88 c6 grey? the instruction book tells me the seats are grey but im not sure about the rest of the cockpit. Also the book doesn't indicate what colour to paint the undercarriage parts.

Right then;
Most of the cockpit is grey, sides, seats etc. Various levers and other detail can be picked out in black or Anthracite if you have it and then a dry brush with silver will bring it all up nicely.
The undercarriage seems to be mostly light olive green (Revell 45) with the oleos picked out in silver. Wheel hubs are silver. Undercarriage bays are also light olive inside as are the inner surfaces of the undercarriage bay doors.
How's it going?

Certainly for the outside, any grey will do internally tbh, use the black for details inside the cockpit. The same grey will work on the u/c if you can't get anything near light olive

How do i paint on seat belts onto the seats that are in the cockpit. I don't want to start making belts, it's a fiddle

For future reference, it would be easier to do belts before the cockpit is put in the fuselage.

If you have a steady hand you could try painting them on with a very fine brush or even a bit of paint on the end of a toothpick or cocktail stick. Either way use very little paint.

Frankly though, I would not bother on this one now the seats are installed. A bit risky to try painting them now.

Good looking King Tiger. I agree with David. Once the cockpit is in it is very difficult to do detail work inside. It is hard to see it anyways through all the glass panels.

Yes, I suspect it might be tempting fate a little to do belts now, especially if you want to avoid using tape which can be difficult.
But the whole build is starting to look good, keep us up to date with progress!

You could try drawing belts on with a coloured pencil :grin:
