    Hi everybody
    as you can see here
    http://www.ww2aircraft.net/forum/start-finish-builds/1-32-hasegawa-bf-109-g-14-a-25857.html
    I started building the Hasegawa BF 109 G-14.
    For cockpit details I'm using the MDC kit that's quite good but absolutely not clear to me on how to assembly the rudder pedals, also because instructions are very basic
    [​IMG]
    PE parts no. 24 are nice but are them to be back supported by something? There are little resin parts probably to be used for this, but how?
    Does anybody have a drawing or picture of these rudder pedals and how they were installed?
    Many thanks in advance
    Alberto

    Thanks, Wurger, your pictures are really helpful even if I still don't understand if, behind the pedal there is a support or something similar (I don't find the purpose of some little resin parts supplied with MDC kit).

    You'r welcome. Unfortunately the sheet of the MDC kit manual , you posted, is too small .As a result there nothing can be seen. Would you be so kind and post the larger one? I might help then better.Also a pic of the part would be nice.

    So, here is an enlarged picture of the manual, but for me isn't helpful
    [​IMG]
    on the left of PE 24 is the pedal strap and then, two more bits.

    Photo etched parts are easy to identify
    [​IMG]
    but isn't clear, for me if parts no. 15 and 17 belong to rudder pedals or to other item.

    Resin bits are these
    [​IMG]
    First or second from the left could be the u.v. lights but I don't understand the purpose of the remaining
    Again thanks in advance
    Alberto

    Don't you just love those instructions that are clear as mud. I would say the first resin part on the left is the one which attaches to the cockpit floor and to which the rudder pedals are attached. Parts nos. 1517 are part of the seat belt assembly
    and are the leather pads that form a backing to the lap belts.

    I think Magnu is right. However these rasin remains are for sidewalls ( crancles etc..) These are in 3 and 4 drawings of your instruction. These 15 and 17 like Magnu said.

    Especially the last one. Whoever made that pit did a spectacular job.
