The Wombat knows, altough he is too kind to a scribbler like me!  Take a look at the kits parts and you'll see that all the little cockpit accessories are there, but not connected.  I'm following the excellent drawings in Radu's book to add the electrical and tbing connectors.  The circuit breaker panel needed a real bundle- I'll post pics Sunday eveing.

Again- my thanks to all!!

If you're a scribbler, then I'm still chewing on the crayons rather than putting them to paper! ;)

My warmest thanks, guys!   The next focus will be on the seat and floor- several details to be added there.  This aircraft was a product of the "stick it wherever it fits" design school.  As new features were invented, they got jammed in somewhere the pilot could reach 'em!   One choice looming before me:  do I rebuild the kit PE instrument panel?  It's not correct- but would look fine as is.  I'm leaning toward fabricating a new one- we'll see. 

Cheers!

Some things never go out of fashion  ;D Cool uniform detail on your girl, and I finally get what you mean when you talk about 3D over the flatter PE provided parts after seeing that bracket!

Thanks, gents!  I present my last post for 2013- hooray!   I've really gotten absorbed into the details of the cockpit- such a challenge not only to build, but to learn about all the various sub-systems and widgets.  You'll also note that I've replace my "artistic' chicken-scratch with actual typography- I hope it suits you.

The lovely Marina will be your guide- cheers- and a happy New Year to one and all!
