Wow! A vac u-form Ar-234 in 1:32 is an amazing thing to me. Do you have to make your own cockpit or can you buy a printed/etched brass set in thin sheet to cut and fit in 1/32? And what about the decals? As far as this vac u-form Ar-234 "kit", did you have an option to buy the four engine version? I recall some decent 1/32 Luftwaffe models like Me109G's and Fw190D's, do you have to kit bash those to complete this?

I model aircraft mostly in 1/72 as it's easier to get kits for my air-frames of choice to model; cold-war Russian, French, British and US etc. Likewise, as in 1:48 railways the availability of the desired Micro-Scale set in 1:72 dictates which kits; Six-Day War, Paki-Indian War, Falklands, US-NVAF, Iraq-Iran, Indonesia, Libya etc.

Ok this kit was very basic so it had no interior at all.I had spare cockpit parts from a 1/32 Bristol Beaufighter that fit surprisingly well even if inaccurate! I took various radios and a twin screen radar screen from my parts stash.I could not find the paired engines that were featured on the 234C model in 1/32 although I do have a 1/48 scale Hobbycraft C variant that includes those paired engines.I am waiting on instrument panel decals but I have painted some details.

I went though this whole thread and these are some good inspirational posts here. The craftsmanship is great.
I don't want anyone to be discouraged by the lack of posts.

I know I haven't been posting much here or there and can't explain much why. I've been working very diligently on some very enjoyable railroad projects but have not felt motivated to take any photos. I know everyone says it is easy to work with photos and import them from other sites but I feel like I am gradually being beaten down by technology. I still can't get off my butt and just do it.
