Thanks mate :)) Here is progress- first photo is all parts painted in black primer and rest is work. Only confusion in the moment is the part with instrument panel, it show that it is grey and green. Must see details if anywhere could be seen... maybe cockpit side is green.

In this steps I have built cockpit, which is not so complex. Next was construction behind engine and it need a bit care to put all pins into slot. Good that parts are excellent precision, so all completed nicely. Fit of this two assembly section into fuselage halfs was absolute correct!!
