seat belt drama

Here is a few shots of the cockpit so far

After grinding the molded in seat belts off of the seat and painting the seat flat black, I'm ready to put some seat belts in. I've got this scale motorsport kit. It includes adhesive backed cloth material that needs to be colored and cut, as well as photoetched parts. I've got a blue permanent magic marker to color the belt material.

To be honest, I'm not happy with the results. The belt material is very difficult to work with. It was essentially impossible to color the material evenly with the marker, and even more difficult to prevent the cloth from fraying. I think I'm going to scratch the belts and go for the photoetched parts included in the Studio 27 photoetch kit.

Total time: 135h
