The easy way to creating a realistic “front office”
Hopefully you liked the first “From the Shop,” which informed you about a hobby related company that you may not have otherwise known about.

This second stanza article highlights a company that many who are deep into scale modelers may recognize, but perhaps is unknown to many others. To me, there is nothing worse to see, on a well done model, than a “stick” running across the fuselage in the cockpit area with a poorly painted pilot bust, not even date related to the subject matter, just sittin’ there, over a huge EMPTY, cavernous area, normally stuffed full of instruments, side panels, knobs and switches. And, to be honest, we see that a lot. You know why? Well, I think it might be because to make a cockpit interior, one that looks really nice, from scratch, is about impossible for most of us, ME included! Think about it: you gotta find drawings, scale the instruments and panels to the right size, then cut a bazillion little parts, then fill or prime them, paint them, add gauges, then mount all those parts realistically! If you’re lucky, all that takes a mere 200 hours!
