Well I am happy to present another items. They are to small for some details. Well, we are not able to see detailed parts as it is presented in the designes.

Mixture quadrant and chassis controller are done. The mixture quadrant kit will come with the silver body. That is not right scale, but it will be cheaper.

Finally I started works on the cockpit floor. It will take some hour to put together the stripes, but I hope, the result will be great.

Cockpit floor master is almost finished. The primer paint helps me to find the holes and scratches in the surface.
