Greetings everyone!
I won this old HIND-D kit and decided to convert it to the HIND-F version.
For this I will not use some photo-etched, just parts made in scratbuilding.
I hope you like to follow ...

 

The kit...

Man, I quit!:worship:Beautiful work. What is the floor made of? How did you do the rivets?

Hi, midnightprowler!
The floor was drawn on the computer, then cut into test paper. After approved, it is cut into aluminum (beer cans) and the rivets are made using a tip (puncture) applied on the reverse side of the piece.
Thanks for watching!

That's just amazing work

 

How did you get those "bezels" around the instrument openings?

dnl42,
Thanks for following!
I open the holes using a well-honed drill and to get the contours in high relief, lightly apply a metal punch on the reverse side of the hole, which widens the hole, and then just lightly sand the hole.

 

midnightprowler and Wolfgun33: Thanks for following the assembly and for the comments!
