Hi Shayne! Thank you for kin words! I was thinking about the Seagull´s 30cc P-47, but I got a chance to take that TopFlite project.
Merry Xmas to you and your family!!

The oxygen regulator design is done, but the mixture quadrant miss the levers. They will come in couple of days. There were the same oxygen regulator in Mustangs, well I will list it on the P-51 accessories list.

Anoter parts are done. The cockpit is too small, that is the reason why the items are not detailed like it is presented in the pictures before.

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.

Last morning I did new mixture quandart. That is more detailed and right scale. I am happy with the result of the flap control lever. Letters are scale and still readable. The small round items are primer starter switches.
I hope you like those parts.

Anyone have any ideas for tail wheel open/closing mechanism? I'm using a Robart Air tailwheel and the frustration is getting larger and more intense

Some update from workshop. I did the instrument panel master. In the picture is the main part of the instrument panel set and printed gauges for the windows. Some switches are done as you were able to see before.

Cockpit side panels are assembled! In one picture you can compare size of the 1/48 scale cockpit and 1/5.75 one. Now I can make the cockpit floor.
