Very happy with the result of new cockpit stuff. In the pictures are all parts in 1/6 scale. Glad, that all details are visible, well also 1/5.3 scale or bigger parts will be detailed such as those smaller items.
For sliding canopy would be better to replace the grey resin rail by some aluminium or brass, well the door gear can come without the rail.

I painted door gear. Next week I would like to take some better pictures. It seems that is time to get back to fuselage master model and make molds.

I did pressure bottles for oxygen system. Those are 1/4, 1/5 and 1/6 scale. With the bottles I did tanks for de-icing fluid for same scales. It seems that all main parts of the de-icing system are done- fluid tank, pump and valve.

I finally finished control column. The spade grip is movable, well it will be easy to assemble it with pilot's hand. I assume, that it would work with animated pilots. That one is for 1/4 scale Spitfire. But I will make the same one for my 1/5.3 scale project.

Like for gunsight Mk.8 I designed bracket also for gunsight Mk.2. Because the shape of Mk.2 is more complicated I designed the bracket like in real from two pieces.
