m happy that I finished the first control stick. The ready made sticks probably wont be so detailed, but I would add some manual how to finish them.

Today I am very happy. I finished the chassis controller. In the picture you can see it with the labels. The labels will be included in the kit or you can order the ready made item.

FYI the green is called RAF Interior Green. It's available as a hobby paint. It's a lighter green than the US Zinc Chromate green.

I use Tamiya cockpit green. I used that paint on the control stick and part of the seat as you can see.
But the seats were not green. They were made from synthetic resin bonded paper composit. That is what I want make. The green paint is not problem.

Done and ready to ship. I love, when I can make some small details like to movable levers. They are not glued to the central axle, but only slidden and locked.

Well, today I finished the radio switch. I see, that the same switch were also in P-47 Thunderbolt. The kits and ready made switches will come with the label. Same as the voltage regulators.
