Thanks Dhanners and Kurt. Excuse my late feedback, I was really busy lately and did little progress in building and... even less in posting!

Your guess, Dhanners, about the bar as a camera mount seems to me very likely.
Anyway, whatever its use is, now it's done...

And now let's go on with some update an my build.

The first thing I want to show you is the fire extinguisher.
The first prototype was printed on matt paper. Looking at it I realized that a fire extinguisher is usually painted in glossy red so I printed it on photographic paper and now it looks much better. In the photo you can see the first prototype, on the left, and the final extinguisher on the right.

The next task was to complete commander's and pilot's seats. I already built one seat calling it "final version" but, as you know, nothing is final till the real end of a work, so I studied well my PROTOTYPE (as I decided to rename it) and, with a little help from my friends (thanks Nando!) I enhanced the original model in many parts.

First of all I added some raised details in the rear section.
Then I added all velcro patches, some other raised details here and there, and added a box in the upper rear section of the backrest.
Then I corrected the lateral bars that was too short and forced backrest in a wrong forward-shifted position. I decided to cut away all elements (bars and metal plaques) to enhance 3D looking.

Finally I added many details to the seat belts (buckles and locking mechanism) to enhance their "solid" feeling.

Now the seats are really "final version" ... (I think! )

Big difference in the fire extinguisher and the seat, WOW! Great job of micro modeling.

Whether really or not really, once more there is another high quality component of the whole.

This is a incredible build. The amount of work put into this model is amazing.

Front RHC boxes

Thanks friends, you are too kind but, as always, I appreciate a lot your comments.

These day I feel inspired... Maybe it's the bad weather

Another little step ahead: RHC boxes, necessary complement to front seats.
20 tiny parts to add a small box in front of the seats.
Some parts are triple-layered to reach the necessary thickness.
In the 3rd photo you see a little box that will be attached to the lower side. I didn't include it in my first prototype because I hadn't a good photo depicting this component. I assumed it is identical to the one placed in aft deck that is better seen in photos.
Another small step towards completion

Next time I'll have to deal with actual joysticks. I have several ideas to test, let's see what is better. See you soon!
