Get back to the instrument panel. Allmost all instruments got their screws, but I must find some more smaller for the voltmeter and switches.

Prekin,

you are doing amazing job, do you think your parts will fit the Fliteskin 1/5 scale Spit?

They will fit. BT Spitfire is 1/5.3 scale, so it is really close to your size. Different of the instruments size is not so obvious

Base of the pilot seat is done. Now I will make the whole mounting. It seems that the pilot seat will have more parts than whole cockpit.

Im working on throttle quadrant now. It is quite complicated part. What part would you like to see. Scale detailed made from 5-10 parts or not so detailed and cheaper?

Hi Shayne, I did some parts yesterday, they I detailed as I use to do. The 3D design is not the problem.

The throttle quadrant is almost done. The levers will be adjustable. I know that, the cotter pin is too big, but I had to add it. First I try to make it scale and detailed as I can.

OK Shayne, next days I would like to make some of the first parts in real. Will you want also the fibreglass accessories? Cowl, air scoop, cannon blisters, canopy frame, spinner, canopy...?

The most difficult parts of the cockpit are done. The rest of them will be pretty easy. The throttle quadrant wont come so detailed you can see in the pictures. The base part will be probably solid.
