Good start but before you get too far, while the instrument console between the seats is black, the instrument panel itself is the same grey as interior with black instruments and some white and red switches but the coaming over the panel is flat black not grey like you have (although you may not have painted same yet of course). There are shots of the instrument panel in the Helicopter section here in a thread on Huey interior colours. All the kits get this wrong, even printing all black instrument panel decals so I'm sure you are following the kit but I thought I'd let you know. HTH

:cheers:

P.S. Not sure which scheme you have picked (Navy?) but the day-glo orange/red (FS38903) is not well depicted on the MAX instructions (I have the 1/72 ones). It is available in Humbrol (209) or Vallejo (70.733 (207)) and is a shocking colour that will require a good white primer undercoat to be of any use....

Thanks Bruce It will be the Navy one I will be revisiting the crew seats { mostly the seatbelts } and the instrument panels . Appreciate the heads up one the colours 

The Humbrol 209 I have refuses to mix Hopefully just a dodgey batch. Will buy more and try again . Thanks again for looking Hopefully this won't disappoint ;
