Another week gone by, another cockpit skin completed (starboard side this time). I searched and searched and searched the parts sheets for part #60, but couldn't find it, so I decided to scratch build the part. On the diagrams, part #60 looked like some kind of flat panel; in real life, the part turned out to be two separate instruments with hand-crank dials on them (no clue what they are). One of the frustrating things with a Halinski kit, believe it or not, is that it takes a lot of effort to put the bits together, and it yields an impressive level of detail, but then you compare the kit to a picture of the real thing, and you see that there's a LOT of detail left out. It produces mixed feelings of sadness that some details got omitted, mixed with relief that they DID get omitted! Weird, I know.

P.S. After I finished everything up on this sub-assembly, I found the missing #60.

Indeed, beautiful clean work. The small container with the red cross is a detail that reminds one of the wartime dangers....

Thank you, gentlemen. My build will be on hold for a few days. My headband magnifier broke, and I need to order a new one. Now I will be able to replace the el cheapo one I have with something a little better. Can't work without one.
