    Wow... deja vu. I think I built that kit when I was much younger when I used to build models without paint. I'm pretty sure I still have the leftovers from that decal sheet.

    Thanks for popping in guys and great shots Snautzer. Started some work on the innards..

    The left console isn't very accurate but not a lot will be seen. The 4 knobs highlighted were removed and replaced by sprue to represent T handles. There are several more but I would have to remove more detail. I also added a handle to the right side which is very prominent in the photos I have.

    Thanks gents. Great shots again Snautzer, I forgot about the half red gauge. A bit of masking should do it. I also found a wheel that I didn't end up using. I'll see if I can make it fit when I get home. Off to PG.......
